What is Sufism?

Sufism is the philosophy of being a good human being. Mewlana Rumi say “You can be anything in life, but the important thing is, to be a good human” He reminds us that being a good human being is more important than your positions and titles.

Being a human means accepting and loving all people equally, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation or language, The Sufis say: “The Creator does not care for the outer form, instead cares for the love within your love.”

“Hakan Mengüç is one of the pioneers of the Sufi philosophy in the 21st century.”

Hakan Menguc’s philosophy of life

While explaining his philosophy of life built on hopefulness and sharing hope, he says: “Hopefulness is not a pure optimism. It is not to ignore the tragedy that humanity faces. Hope means seeing every possibility and doing your best for good rather than sitting at your house and cursing evil.”

“I know you’re tired but come, this is the way.” Rumi

Hakan Mengüç argues that it is enough for even one person to believe in the continuity of hope on earth. “Moreover, this person can be you,” he says. “Then, you will continue to expand to become another “you” and another “you” and turn into “we”. 

That is why Hakan Mengüç has adopted the idea of “Burn a candle instead of swearing in the darkness…” And as his teachers suggest, the young writer, who aspires to make efforts to enlighten others with the candle he lights, wishes to encourage others to light new candles on this path. 

“In the long run, the pessimist may be proved right, but the optimist has a better time on the trip.”

As Rumi said: “When a candle ignites another candle, it does not lose anything from its own light. On the contrary, it leads to the enlightenment of the darkness. ”

“I am writing Hakan Mengüç’s books as a prescription for my patients.”
