Sufism is the mystical dimension of Islam, which is all about leaving plurality to merge with the ultimate singularity, the Oneness of God. Sufi yearn for the love of God and has no desire except the Divine Love. Where orthodox Islam arguably does not encourage music, Sufis has used it as an instrument to spread the message of love, delf development and spiritual learning all over the world.
There is a wide variation in Sufi Music, from Qawwalis popular in the sub-continent whereas Ney (Flute) has been widely popular by lovers of Mevlana Rumi in Turkey. Sufi music today spreads over different regions and represents a wide diversity of instruments and genres.
