Seeing as it's Ramadan, I couldn't think of a better time to post this.

As of right now, I'm lost. I'm seeking to find a place (spiritually) in religion, and growing up in a Muslim background, I had spent the last few months trying to forcefully fit my large foot into the ever so small slipper. Islam is beautiful, but in some cases, it's not the source of morality as many claim it to be. I don't want to leave Islam completely (primarily - and admittedly - because I'm scared that I could be wrong, and don't want to spend the rest of eternity burning).

I've been looking into Sufism which seems as a more peaceful and self-concerning sect of Islam. Are there any Sufi's out there willing to answer a few of my questions?

Follow what your heart says and don't listen to your families or someone else's version of Islam

The best way to solve this is to learn the religion. Dont look into sects as this will not lead to anything because the only 'sect' that will enter jannah is the one that follows the messenger (saw), follwing the qur'an and sunnah.

Sufism is the only part of Islam that doesn't make it a complete bag of sh*t

I like Sufis, I personally knew one and he was nice. However, don't they discard the pillars of Islam? I still don't understand how they worship though... By dancing? lol it looks fun

Perhaps you should read the book Sea Without Shore by Nu Ha Mim Keller. Hope it helps.

Sufism is surrounded by much speculation, a lot of it being incorrect. Though there may be a few people in every sect that go to extremes, sufis in general do not discard the pillars of Islam.
