Full Description

Sufi is a Muslim mystic that tries to experience God directly, especially by praying and meditating. People who believe Sufism focuses on self-control that enables both mental and mystical insights as well as a loss of self. They have rituals and practices such as writing and reciting poetry and hymns. Some of the most famous literature of the Islamic world has been written by Sufis. In this tour, we will focus on Sufi practices and their philosophy. The Sufi movement consists of fraternal orders in which leaders train and assist disciples in the mastery of Sufism’s philosophical principles and ritual practices such as writing and reciting poetry and hymns. Each order has a different day and time of dhikr (Islamic devotional act), places of visits will change accordingly. Mevleviye, Cerrahiye, Celvetiye, Nakshibendiye are some of the places that are on our list.
