"Wool-clad ones," members of mystical sects of Islam, the earliest dating from 8th century Persia.
Sufism began as an ascetic movement in reaction to the drive for wealth and power characterized by the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties. They drew on the model of Muhammad and the four rightly guided caliphs. Umar was noted for his shabby clothes and Ali gave away all he had. These ascetics abandoned sensuous life and took on coarse woolen garments from which the name Sufi may derive (from suf, wool). They were also called faqir, poor one, for their aspirations to poverty. Mahabbah (love) became a focus for Sufism as exemplified in the poetry of a female mystic poet. While others strove for intellectual knowledge, Sufis strove for interior knowledge, ma’rifa.

Sufis are mystics that generally follow the spiritual muslim tradition. Their name is said to derive from the Arabic word for wool" Suuf"; but, in meaning it seems more related to The Sophists, a philosophical movement designating seekers of Truth, lovers of Wisdom.

Sufis and Sophists are really the same, although sufism today is recognized more as a spiritual path than a philosophical tradition.
Uneducated, unlearned people long ago may have heard the word Sophist and associated it with the Arabic word for wool, but it seems more related to the Greek word sophistēs, formed from the noun sophia, ‘wisdom’ or ‘learning'.
the Sufis I know are so perseverant, never tiring in their search for Truth

PERSON B:Well hes from malta and thinks hes a god so yeah hes most probably a Sufi.

Otherwise known as the Super Finger. The act up holding up the two inner fingers on your hand. Originally invented by comedian, Dane Cook. The SuFi is now widely used during road rage.

When a car passes into your lane without a blinker, you will say "Check out this mother fucker." And give him a SUFI Salute.
