This article is devoted to one of the most famous sufy theoretics of the Xth century al-Qushchayi (986-1072) whose treatise Principles of Sufism is considered to be one of the most readable works on theory of Islam mysticism among sufies all over the world. This article deals with the ideological basis of al-Qushchayi's work. Basing on the arabic sources and modern studies, the author comes to the conclusion that this famous sufy follows the ideas of Asharite theology.
