    This following text is not written by the OP starter, but reflect his view of the world

    The multi-faceted notion of divine love among the sufis imparts openness for recognizing multiplicity of views and accommodation of differences. Philosophically speaking, the sufis consider the ‘Universal Truth’ or the ‘Reality’ as essentially one, expressed and articulated in multiple ways by the adherents of varied religious traditions. That is why sufis view the entire humankind as the family of God, and believe in serving them without discrimination on the basis of caste, color, creed or gender. Any kind of ‘othering’ in the social, cultural or religious sense is discouraged. In particular, the ‘religious other’ in the Sufi worldview is revered like a co-religionist.

    The text above was taken from this website, that contain a lot more info than just this little paragraph

    This mystical worldview has been existing in other religions for millenia, such as Hinduism. I just think it gets complicated when you try to mix a tolerant "pagan" attitude with the demand for an exclusivist Abrahamic god. At a certain point you'll have to sacrifice either your claim to universal tolerance or your exclusivist god. I think the Baha'is on this forum can tell more about it.

    I can not speak for other people or religions, but sufism is an inward path to recognize God from within. And it is not about making critique of other religions for believing differently.
    Allah is the God a Muslim sufi believe in. and should not take teaching from other Gods or Buddhas, because it will mix up the teaching.
    Personally even i believe in Allah and the teaching through Sufism, does not mean it can not be other Gods, monoteims in my understanding is to keep only to one God.
