Sufism is a mystic tradition of Islam based on the pursuit of spiritual truth as it is gradually revealed to the heart and mind of the Sufi (one who practices Sufism). The Islamic Thinkers Society provides their cynical view of the Sufist practice:

"The Sufi are really something. Check out this Chechen Sufi jam. Watch the old man jumping higher than anyone... Would anyone attribute this sort of behavior as something part of Islam? Is this gaining the pleasure of Allah?"
