Basis of sufism

“The basis of sufism is in five things: Fear of Allah in secret and in the open. To follow the Sunnah in speech and deed. To turn away from creation whether it is coming towards you or leaving you. To be pleased with either a little or a lot. To return to Allah in ease and difficulty.”

– Shaykh ibn Ajiba in his commentary on the poem of Ibn al-Banna of Saragossa
