Expert Answer:

Some major differences between sufism and bhaktism were:

  • While the Bhakti movement was largely followed by the Hindus, Sufism influenced the Muslims.
  • While the saints of the Bhakti Movement sang bhajans to worship Gods and Goddesses, Sufi saints sang Qawwalis- a form of music to inspire religious devotion and instruction.
  • The development of the Bhakti cult first began in South India in the 7th-8th century in order to bridge the gulf between the Shaivas and the Vaishnavas. On the other hand, following the entrance of Islam in the early 8th century, Sufi mystic traditions became more visible during the 10th and 11th centuries of the Delhi Sultanet.
