Before Islam the different names of God were considered to be different gods known by different names and identified with different attributes and characteristics. By invoking the names of different gods a person accomplished his object in life, as now Wazifa is practiced by the Sufis. The music which the ancient Greek knowers of mystery had as a means of their spiritual development, the same is used even now in the Chishtiyya schools of Sufis, where the Qawwali meeting, which is called Sama, is held, in which music is played and sung for awakening the emotional nature, which is the secret of revelation.
