Sa,id Hawwa, was a Syrian Salafi with Sufistic trends, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a prominent ideologue in his country and the world as well who was trained in a Salafi School but by a Sufi Murshid. The turmoiled conditions of the Middle East, especially Syria, Palestine and Egypt affected him profoundly making him set up Salafi Sufism as an ideological project to get out of the miserable conditions he was surrounded with. His purpose was to combine Sufism and Salafism, two inconsistent approaches in a way that the capacities of the former could be in the service of the latter. He encountered numerous challenges while implementing his project that made him defend some of the Sufis, miracles and rituals such as the birthday memorial of the Prophet, witnessing them being criticized by Salafis. However, Hawwa could not managed to accomplish his project and some new developments then in the region such as the Islamic revolution of Iran resulted in his holding some paradoxical positions during the last years of his life such as Shiafobia on which he wrote a book too.
