List of Sufis

List of notable modern Sufis, Sufism (Arabic: تصوّفtaṣawwuf, Persian: صوفی‌گری sufigari, Turkmen: tasavvuf, Urdu: تصوف) is generally understood to be the inner, mystical dimension of Islam.[1][2][3] A practitioner of this tradition is generally known as a ṣūfī (صُوفِيّ), though some adherents of the tradition reserve this term only for those practitioners who have attained the goals of the Sufi tradition. Another name used for a Sufi seeker is dervish.
