Iran Nasseri Sisakht
Abstract: This article, as it is obvious from its title, deals with Sufism and its relation with politics and government. At the beginning, meaning of words, different attitudes towards Sufism and Sufis, and then, the steps of their seizing power and the deterioration of their government have been analyzed. In this article it is tried to reason that, though some people deem mysticism and Sufism as the result of inactivity and indifference about political and social matters, indeed it has been a socio-political school and from the beginning, this trend has been noticeable in this school.
