Hope he is on the right way

To my knowledge this fellow from Herat, Afghanistan is a tariqah, somebody following the 'path'. This 'sufi' is most possibly a follower of Naqshbandi, which is considered a ‘sober’ order believing in silent dhikr (remembrance of God) and suhbat (an intimate relationship between student and master).

However, the tattooed sword on his left hand is worrisome to me.

Look at his expression... he thinks about chopping your head off! ;-)
You seem to be fearless. I am not afraid of people but I need to confess I wouldn't dare taking the pictures you do.
I don't even mention I wouldn't go there in the first place !
