What is a Sufi? Is Sufism right?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Sufism is a process of spiritual upliftment. It is a way of reforming
oneself and attaining closeness to Allah Ta’ala. Spiritual upliftment,
reformation and attaining closeness to Allah are orders replete in the Qur’

If it is possible for any individual to reform himself, he should do so. However, it is generally noticed that individuals experience difficulties in
reforming themselves and seek assistance of a spiritual guide who is pious and adhere to Shari’ah in reforming themselves. The practise of taking
allegiance (Bay’at) and following the guidance of one’s spiritual mentor is called Sufism.

And Allah Taãla Knows Best.
