First: the concept of Sufism
In order to reach the knowledge of the origin and origin of Sufism, I was exposed to the meaning of the word (Sufi + Sufi + Sufism).

There are many definitions of the definition of Sufism, and we present some of them:
Dream bin Muhammad Al-Baghdadi said ((() Sufism is based on three qualities: adherence to poverty, poverty, and verification
By giving and abandoning the purpose and choosing)) ©.

Al-Junayda was asked about Sufism. He said: Purifying the heart from the approval of the wild and the paradox of natural morals.
the suppression of human qualities; And free psychological reasons and fighting spiritual qualities and attachment to science
real. And a first use over eternity, advice to all the nation, loyalty to God on the truth, and following the Messenger
(PBUH) in Sharia.

A title and whoever says that it is derived from al-Safa or an adjective, then it is far from the point of view of linguistic analogy))©).

The derivation is likely to be more than one opinion: there are those who attributed the word to (Sufi), which is the name of a man who had been alone

in detachment from God).
