What The Shaykh Of Maalikiyyah (At-Tartooshee) Said About The Soofees

Imaam At-Tartooshee Al-Maalikee (451-520H) was asked about the Soofees so he said:

“The Madh-dhab of the Soofees is futile, ignorance and misguidance… and it is not allowed for anyone who believes in Allaah and the last day to be present with them, nor help them upon their baseless ways, and this is the way of (Imaam) Maalik, (Imaam) Aboo Haneefah, (Imaam) Ash-Shaafi’ee and other scholars of the Muslims and to Allaah belongs success.”

[See Tafseer Al-Qurtubee, 11/237-238]

Elsewhere he says:

“The Madh-dhab of te Soofees is inactive and misguided and what is Islaam except the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger. As for dancing and excessive passion then the first to innovate it were the people of Saamiree when they took an idolised calf and danced around it with excessive passion and this dancing is from the religion of the non-Muslims and those that worshipped the calf…”

[Al-Mi’yaar Al-Mu’rib, 11/162-163]
