I have gotten a few hits because someone keeps googling as to whether or not Sufis are allowed to drink alcohol. No true Sufi would ever sit at the same table as alcohol, much less drink it! The objective of Sufism is to purify the soul via Sharia’ and get closer to Allah. Alcohol is unequivocally and categorically made alcohol impermissible in the Quraan in multiple verses. How can one attain closeness to Allah when he does what Allah despises?! Such a person will never attain closeness to Allah!
There are stories about the crazy Sufis who drink alcohol and then recite some poetry and then say how it is halal. These are what are called the false Sufis. The true Sufi follows Sharia’ whereas the false Sufi does not. I had a teacher who once told me that if I see anyone preforming miracles, examine his life. If he follows Sharia’ then accept him, if he does not then he is false.
As for the Sufi poets, such as Imam Ghazali and Mawlana Rumi who use alcohol in their poems, they are doing so to get the point of their poem across. They did not actually drink alcohol.
The short answer is no!
