Yunus explained the beliefs that Sufis have and the origins of the movement.  In many ways Sufism is like Islam taken to another spiritual level, where loving the beloved (God) is all important.  Different levels of devotion were made clear – Shariat (the law),   Tariqat (the path), Haqiqat (the journey) and Marifat (the destination).
