No one, however, could satisfy them and they told them to do this or that. The militant sufi upsurge was waning by the dawn of the 20th century, but it laid an important groundwork for the national liberation struggles of the post-World War II era, and there is often a direct lineage linking the two. True Sufi people never deviated from the Shari'ah and the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Qur'an, regardless of the exuberance of the ecstatic utterances of some Sufis and some explanations that revealed the Greatness of God and the mercy and purity of His Beloved Messenger, Beloved Muhammad (s).

Nafs al-ammara is the tendency in man to disobey God, and to take pleasure in evil deed and thought. Sufism is a way of love, a way of devotion, and way of knowledge. No scholar gave a shirk or bid'ath fatwa on these either.
