Sufism (tasawwuf) is a journey of completion in two important aspects: First, it is a journey, which proceeds from and leads to the Mature Human Being (Insan-i Kamil). Second, it is a complete method, which uses every possible effective means to orchestrate the transformation of a human being. It can thus multiply its effectiveness by using multiple channels of experience to achieve its purpose. Both of these facts—the completeness of the method and the completeness of the result—are of the highest significance.
The means by which the human being will be transformed depend on our understanding of what a human being is and what it is designed to be. The wholeness of the Sufi method proceeds from the wholeness of its apprehension of human nature.
