According to Classical Sufi scholars, Sufism is "a science whose objective is the reparation of the soul and turning it away from all else but God." Sufi music is identified by the writings of poet philosophers of the Sufi tradition which are sung to the tune of various kinds of musical instruments. The Qawwali and the Kalam are two most common genres of Sufi singing where the former is distinguished from the rest by a successive augmenting of tempo to accentuate the notion of losing oneself into the spiritual realm by way of music. A Sufi Kalam is more recognizable by way of the poetry and less by a distinct style of music. The performer, in this genre, not only sings out a composition that is rehearsed and perfected but is always a philosophically inclined being and in simultaneous surrender to the vocation and the almighty conducts the rendition in reverence.
