Morocco Sufi Encounters
The heart of Islam is known by Muslim Scholars and spiritual devotees as Tassawuf or in western terms Sufism. Sufism is the venue of education and spiritual teaching, considered to be the hidden knowledge of subjective Islam. It was first defused informally by stoics and devoted Muslim to the immaterial world before it was progressively structured around the 11th century. This doctrine of struggle with one own ego is the essence of the practical universal message of Islam. Historically, the transmission of this teaching is practiced, from the 13th century down through spiritual centers that earned by merit to preserve the norms of the culture, sociability, and spirituality proper to Islam in an era of dislocation of the Muslim world, particularly under the impact of Mongol invasions. These centers, in fact, have known how to preserve a message of a universal spirituality that has nourished the Muslim culture and not only enhanced its artistic and literary expressions but also its social and economic advancements. For centuries Sufism has inspired simultaneously the organization and the ethical and spiritual charters of guilds of crafts throughout the Muslim world.
