Essence of tasawwuf

shah_jahan_mosque_s_.jpgHadhrat Mufti Mohammed Hasan (may Allah have mercy on him), Hakim al-Umma’s khalifa and founder of Jamia Ashrafia Lahore said,

“The essence of  tasawwuf can be condensed in two terms, the means (tareeq) and the objective (maqsud).

The means are the acts of worship (‘amal).

And the objective is Allah’s pleasure. 

That is, at all the times one should be striving to gain Allah’s pleasure.”
