Sufi Al Jalalani Charity Profile

There are different views regarding the origin of the word ‘Sufi’. Some believe it is derived from ‘Suffa’ (platform), constructed in the Prophet’s (PBUH) time for devotees. The majority believe the word is derived from ‘sof’ meaning wool. During the eighth and ninth centuries, some ascetics were disturbed by the focus on wealth & materialism and the abandonment of austerity.

These ascetics tried to return to the simple life and dressed in coarse woolen garments that were supposedly favored by the Prophet (PBUH). Another view is that the word Sufi is derived from the term sahafa. In the times of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammed (PBUH), the message of Islam was spreading far and wide by missionaries and conquests. The sahafa was one band of men who were totally devoted to prayer and meditation. Worship and search for spiritual perfection was their only aim. Over the centuries the sahafa became those holy men who are now called Sufis.
