The quintessence of Sufi teachings is service to humanity regardless of caste, creed, colour, of faith. The Sufis believe, al khalaq-o-ayatullah, meaning that the whole creation is the 'family of God'. Love of God is not complete without loving his ayal (family). The Sufis believe that true worship is not in the performance of rites, rituals and supererogation. True worship is in the service of humanity.

Sufism includes purification of self, mastering of passions and desires, filling of the mind exclusively with the thought of God. Obtaining control over bodily functions and mental processes till the objective world ceases to distract consciousness, till man passes away (fana/ nirvana) from phenomenal existence and attains union with the divine. The soul stands self-enlightened and unperturbed by temptations and apprehensions.

No men can be its guardians except the righteous .
(surah alnafal ayat 34)

Behold ! verify on the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve.
(Surah yunus ayat 62)
