    In your thread about "Ain ..." you used some quotes from Ibn Al-arabi and he is one of the most famous sufi scholars in his time.

    How do you see Sufism?

    I suppose as I see it as a philosophy more than religion, but certainly a way of interpreting the religion. I'd say that Sufism is both Islamic philosophy and mysticism that should sit next to the orthodox (sunnah) Islam, not replace it.
