Ulama in contemporary usage by Muslims refers to the religious elite of scholars at the top of the sectarian hierarchy. They mainly specialize in Islamic jurisprudence and are considered the arbiters of sharia law by mainstream sects.

A khanqah or khaniqah is a building designed specifically for gatherings of a Sufi brotherhood and is a place for spiritual retreat and character reformation. In the past they often served as hospices for Sufi travelers (salik) and Islamic students.

A Sheikh or sheik of Sufism is a Sufi who is authorized to teach, initiate and guide aspiring dervishes.

Sama is a Sufi ceremony performed as dhikr. Sama means “listening”, while dhikr means “remembrance”.
