Meaning o Tasawuf

Imam Abu Abdillah ibn at-Tubi as-Siqilli rahimahullah says in a poem:

“Tasawwuf does not entail wearing woolen [course] clothing which you patch. Nor does it entail your crying when singers start singing. Nor does it entail shouting, dancing and music. Nor does it entail pretending to have fainted as though you have become mad. Rather, tasawwuf entails your becoming pure without any filth. That you follow the truth, The Qur’an and the Din. That you forever seen to be fearful of Allah, remorseful and aggrieved by your sins.”
