Abstract
This article examines the relevance of Sufism morality education in developing character of pluralism in Indonesia. Through the library research methodology with a historical-philosophical approach, the results show that someone practicing Sufism morality has a high level of tolerance while dealing with the issue of diversity. Internalizing Sufism moral values in modern life strengthens spiritual, personal and social intelligence. In pluralism, Sufism morality teaches two clear and explicit principles. This includes exclusivity in theology and the principle of inclusiveness in the social-interactive aspects. These principles guide how to socialize with community members having different backgrounds. In the context of Indonesia, the noble values of Sufism can be developed to strengthen various pillars and build harmony among religious communities, raise historical awareness and cultural maturity.
