List of notable modern Sufis, Sufism (Arabic: تصوّف‎‎ – taṣawwuf, Persian: صوفی‌گری‎‎ sufigari, Turkmen: tasavvuf, Urdu: تصوف‎) is generally understood to be the inner, mystical dimension of Islam.[1][2][3] A practitioner of this tradition is generally known as a ṣūfī (صُوفِيّ), though some adherents of the tradition reserve this term only for those practitioners who have attained the goals of the Sufi tradition. Another name used for a Sufi seeker is dervish.
