Believing in Allah and his attributes as the very important part of Iman to be a Muslim.
According to the Ash´ari ´aqida, the following 20 attributes, established in the Essence (Dhat) of Allah
(i.e. inherent in Him), are logically necessary (wajib).
E.g. Allah necessarily exists – He is wajib al-wujud. It is therefore imperative to believe in them, and to negate their opposites.
The essential Attributes (Wajib) : 20
Logically Impossible Attributes (Mustahil): 20

As Sheikhul Akbar Muhyiddeen Ibnu Arabi (Ral) says the main reason of the enemies who are all insulting Sufis is their evil feeling of jealousy upon them If this opposing opponents throw away their feeling of enmity and walk in the way of Sufis called “Ahlallah” People who are possessing or possessed by Allah, there will be no envy and counteractions at all.

Sufism is a way of life in which a deeper identity is discovered and lived. This deeper identity, beyond the already known personality, is in harmony with all that exists. This deeper identity, or essential self, has abilities of awareness, action, creativity and love that are far beyond the abilities of the superficial personality. Eventually it is understood that these abilities belong to a greater life and being which we individualize in our own unique way while never being separate from it. Continue Reading
The Dargah Sharif (Noble Shrine) of Gharib Nawaz, r.a.
Love towards all Malice towards none
(excerpted from “The Greatest Preacher of Islam & A Messenger of Peace and Love”
from the committee of the Dargah Sharif, Ajmer, Rajistan, India)
It is a well known historical fact that in spreading the ethical and spiritual values of Islam, major and effective contributions have been made by the walis (saints) of Allah. It was their humanism, disposition and piety which won over the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people. They contacted the masses directly. They served and loved them. They lived with them and inspired them in the realisation of Eternal Truth. The proof of this is more than evident from the history of the growth of Islam in India. Although India was penetrated in the first century of Hijra, the noble task of inspiring the people to its tenets and values was accomplished by Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti, r.a. popularly known as Khwaja Sahib and Khwaja Gharib Nawaz. He did it all through his own great moral power, glorious and appealing character, with love and dedication to mankind, without any worldly resources of wealth, power, force or support.

There are four sects of muslims to answer the above question.
Among the above four sects the first ones are called “Wahhabis” swered ones. The Second ones are also called the swerved ones since they follow the Hulool & Ethihad theory.
The third ones are called Muwahhideens (Followers of Sunna’h wal Jama’ah doctrine) since they are in right path knowing the almighty through proper way.
The forth sects are known as wretches since they don’t want to know the name of their dad and their embryo.
