grace“Having glimpsed the universal spirituality revealed in the Qur’an, what remains significant and compelling for the Sufi is the particular grace operating through the specific forms of the Islamic revelation: ritual prayer, fasting, the human example of the Prophet Muhammad, and the guidance of the Qur’an, as well as Sufi practices that have been developed over the centuries. At the same time, it is possible and necessary to love and find common cause with all people of good will.”
