There are few sources on Sufism and Sunni Sufi orders in Lebanon. Were it not for some news reports on Sufi ceremonies and video clips on YouTube depicting remembrance sessions and spiritual dances, one would almost think that Sufi orders are completely absent in Lebanon. This comes in light of the media, political and military dominance of fundamentalist Salafist currents on the religious scene in Lebanon.
Al-Monitor spoke with Sheikh Ahmed Darwish al-Kurdi, a religious judge who follows one of the Sufi orders in Lebanon. He said that the majority of the Sunni Islamic community in Lebanon loves and supports Sufism. That many of Lebanon's muftis are supporters of Sufism is proof, he said.
