Yeh sufis have a very pragmatic point of view they praise the imams but also praise and accept the the Khalifa that we don’t accept, so they’re just on the fence not really taking a stance but they do claim to get their spiritual practises from ahlul bayt 

so they see ahlul bayt as spiritual leaders while they also accept the Khalifa as political leaders , so kind of everyone has their purpose from their point of view and they’re not really political so they have a divided form if Islam where they see Islam as spiritual guidance and political part and governance not related to Islam as part of its system ie external

As-salam alaykom,

I have understood that his book "I was Guided" is a very influential book to help Sunni Muslims become Shia Muslims. It gave me the idea that maybe I could give this book to many of my Sunni friends, because I do not know how to speak to them about it.

Thank you for bringing up this post!

Maybe you would like this interview with Muhammad al Tijani al Samawi. If they/he says he is a Sufi, could it be for protection? I heard that many Shia say they are Sufi for protection?

Salam It has happened  since Salaedin Ayubi has stated shia genocide  in Egypt & rest of north African  countries which under Taqyia a large group of Shias has joined to sufi groups which through  long time majority of them forgot their faith & has became sunni sufis which in Egypt there is a slang that they are sunnis with shia soul inside.
