Signs of false sufis

Their sufism is focused on and limited to anti-wahabi rhetoric and ritualism. Certain specific practices (rasoom) for remembrance (zikr, sama’, etc.) and celebration (hawl, milad, etc) are over emphasized. The stress on acquiring the knowledge of actions of the heart (maqamat) and the spiritual training (tarbiyet) to develop these are completely ignored. Hence, their tasawwuf does not lead to gnosis (marifah) and perfect slave-hood (‘ubodiyah). This is reflected in their noncompliance to Shariah rulings in the truest sense in all matters of their daily life.
