Homo ludens in Sufi communication studies (theolinguistic aspect)
Play has a significant impact on the intellectual and emotional development of a person both in childhood and in adulthood. This development is not directive, without excessive control and imposed standards, but easy and organic. However, the game is not ontological for a Sufi, since the game describes the mundane side of the Sufi, facing the disappearing world, the manifestation of the fullness of the diversity of their emotions. Above the emotional sphere in the Sufi paradigm is the sphere of the spirit. Therefore, the attributive property of a Sufi is a constant approach to the love of God, a constant state of turning to God and hope for the Creator's answer. The purpose of the article is to research the concept of ‘homo ludens’ in the light of Sufi communication studies. To achieve this goal, the following materials were considered: J. Huizinga's treatise "Homo ludens", as well as Sufi sources mentioning the phenomenon of play. As a result of the study, it was concluded that play in modern religious consciousness is often misinterpreted and underestimated. The article also showed that play in Sufism can be viewed in two senses: 1) as a permitted activity based on freedom of expression and imagination in a specially designated space-time of the game, 2) as any activity not related to remembrance and the knowledge of the Eternal God. In the Sufi paradigm, a person can rather be attributively described not as homo ludens, a person playing, but as homo amens, a loving person. It is concluded that play as ontology is alien to Sufi communication, since the existence of God and the existence of man are postulated as real, not imaginary.
