When Sufism is based on Qur'an and Alsunna, it's a path to piety. If one strays from Qur'an and Alsunna, it's a path to misguidance.

True Sufism is very much a part of the Religion of Islam. Because sufims relates to being religous and pious, indeed, the leader of all the Sufis as some scholars said was Prophet Muhammad, who was sent by Allah to teach the people the matters which, if performed and practiced in the proper way, would lead to their success in this life and in the Hereafter. Unfortunately, many things which are in fact contradictory to the teachings of the Prophet are today labeled Sufism.

There are some, who under the guise of being Sufis, spread falsehood and misguidance and dare to label it Sufism like the ones that believe in Hulul. On the other hand, there are groups, like the Wahhabis and those who follow them, who categorically deny Sufism and claim it is not even a part of the Religion. Many of the great scholars of Islam were true sufis whom spread Islam in the east and the west, may Allah reward them for their endeavors.
