Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

Anytime we try to point out some of the evils in Sufism so that people can be saved from them, some people would ask if they (sufis) don't have any good in them. There is no one without goodness. No matter how bad a person or group is, you will find in them some goodness. The evils in Sufism outweighs its goodness. Then no matter how good an individual is, if he perpetrates shirk or kufr, it will destroy all the goodness. 

If a Sufi does not engage in any bid'ah that involves shirk (polytheism) or kufr (disbelief), his case is fair. But it is still dangerous because Allāh can still hold him upon those bid'ah of lesser grades on the Day of Judgment. All Bid'ah is misguidance. The best thing is to leave bid'ah completely. If merely saying "I am a Muslim" is enough to be a Muslim in the sight of Allāh, Allāh will not face the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and tell him:

وَلَـقَدْ اُوْحِيَ اِلَيْكَ وَاِ لَى الَّذِيْنَ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ ۚ لَئِنْ اَشْرَكْتَ لَيَحْبَطَنَّ عَمَلُكَ وَلَتَكُوْنَنَّ مِنَ الْخٰسِرِيْنَ

And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah, your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers. [Az-Zumar: Verse 65)

More so, the only path that Allāh and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم have clearly prescribed to us is the Sunnah (Salafiyyah). So, what else are we looking for in those devilish paths? The Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

تَرَكْتُ فِيكُمْ أَمْرَيْنِ لَنْ تَضِلُّوا مَا تَمَسَّكْتُمْ بِهِمَا كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَسُنَّةَ نَبِيِّهِ ‏

I have left two matters with you. As long as you hold on to them, you will not go astray - The Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet. [Muwatta' Malik  : Book 46, Hadith 1628]

May Allāh guide us aright
