Tasawwuf = asketism?

Utdrag från
A Sufi Study of Hadith av Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi ... 248462228/
Översättning av Yusuf DeLorenzo.

Hadith 309:

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : " لَيَذْكُرَنَّ اللَّهَ قَوْمٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا عَلَى الْفُرُشِ الْمُمَهَّدَةِ يُدْخِلُهُمُ الْجِنَانَ الْعُلَى " رواه أبو يعلى

Abu Sa´id (رضي الله عنه) related that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Many will be the people in this world who engage in the remembrance of Allah on soft cushions. Allah shall admit them to lofty gardens.” This was related by Abu Ya´ala (2/1110).

Commentary: Comfort and luxury do not negate wilayat

Most of the masses are under the illusion that deprivation is necessary for piety. It should be apparent from the hadith above that if a person remains steadfast in his/her practice of remembrance and obedience, while living in comfort and luxury, s/he can still enjoy the fruits of a close relationship with Allah. However, there are occasions when it is necessary to avoid the circumstances of luxury, or to avoid the company of certain people for a specified time or, in some cases, altogether. This is prescribed by a spiritual master for the sake of spiritual striving, mujahadah. Such avoidance is prescribed in particular situations and is not in itself a prerequisite for spiritual success.
