The Hizmet is the most globalized, transnational Islamic movement, emphasizing altruistic service, and attracts many supporters in more than 160 countries. Hizmet moves as a da`wah movement based on Sufism as an approach, centered by M. Fethullah Gülen. The inspiration of this movement includes education, interfaith and intercultural dialogues, and social assistance and services. The spirit of morality of the hizmet movement is "life is dedication" with the characters: oriented transcendental, the gait of the movement's personnels derived from the sufistic values, the existence of the inspirational power that always lives on every member of the propagation movement, representing almost entirely the visionary idealism of da`wah into uswah (exemplar), positioning itself in participation in the great vision of building a peaceful and mutually rewarding future of the world.
