Abstract:   (525 Views)

Competition is not always a blameworthy action; even it can be the cause of the development of thoughts and civilization. In every competition, conflicts and disputes are blameworthy. Competition often happens in mundane activities that Sufi doesnot like it because of their worldview. But in fact, in many eras, not only not only the supporters and followers of sheiks, but also the great sheiks themselves had controversies in the areas of thought, remembering, and indulgence in mystic states manners. The main reasons of these conflicts were differences between views about some manners and thoughts, and also conflicts between people and their selfishness and megalomania. Because of these conflicts in first century of Sufism emergence, many competitive societies emerged. At last, in later eras, many famous and well-known Sufism groups emerged because of many disagreements between then.
