Sufism or Sufi, is the mystical Islamic belief and practice in which Muslims seek to find the truth of divine love and knowledge through direct personal experience of God. Sufism have elaborated the image of the Prophet Muhammad—the founder of Islam—and have thus influenced Muslim piety by their Muhammad-mysticism.

Sufi has managed uniting all the differences in Sudan although it is a big country that has multi-ethnic classes. This is because the nature of Islam in Sudan depends on Sufi and Sufi has always been a method of purity of heart, tolerance and humility.

Every Friday people visit the shrine to practice religious rites known as (Zikir) where you can hear the sound of Drums mixed with calming hymns worshipping Allah the one and only God. The prevailing belief is that Zikir brings them happiness, blessings and good fortune.
