Answer to the Third Question: What are Daleels from Hadith on Tasawwuf?
The third question of our esteemed brother, Shaykh Muhammad Adly is:
>> 3. Are there any *dhaleels* (proofs & evidences) from the >> Ahadeeths of our Prophet (saw) on Tassawuf and its practices? If >> there are, then please verify their authenticity and state them >> explicitly?
“Yes of course without a doubt there are daleels and proofs from the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) on Tasawwuf and its practices. As we said before, the term Tasawwuf is a technical term, which originated from the various meanings we quoted in the first and second answers. It has deep roots in the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) as well. And its origin is Ihsan, the state of Excellence, that is mentioned in the Sunnah of the Prophet, in the hadith of Jibril (as) which is known to all scholars as Source of the Sunnah (Umm as-Sunnah and Umm al-ahadith) and the Source of all hadith. It is considered that all hadith took their root from it. It is one of the most important hadiths in Islam, and therefore needs no additional support.”
