This study discusses the internalization of character values through the Sufism approach and the assumption that Sufism (tasawuf) practices can be utilized to internalize the character values. The result of this study is the application of the Sufism practices in modern life to actualize the teaching of Sufism, such as renunciation (zuhud), abstinence (wara), patience, thankfulness, certainty, reliance, and watchfulness (muraqabah) into modern life to produce modern Muslims with good manner and  attitude, not only to Allah but also to other people and the environment. Sufism can be one of the tools to shape Islamic characters to solve modern-life problems. Through Sufism, pure character value can be internalized and can be applied to shape good attitude which will form an ideal personality. The Sufism  practices consist of: al taubah (repentance), khauf (fear), raja’ (hope to Allah), al faqr (mendicancy), and al ridha (acceptance). The processes of tahalli, takhalli, and tajalli can make someone actualize the good character values, such as religion, honest, tolerant, discipline, independence, democratic, nationalist, respectful, communicative, piece loving, environment caring, social caring, and responsible.
