Shari'ah and Tariqah - Inseperable and Indivisible
A wonderful work, written approximately 3 years prior to the authors demise. With references from the Quran, Hadith, lives of the Noble Companions and the Great scholars and Shaykhs of Islam, it beautifully explains the essence, purpose and necessity of taqlid and tasawwuf. It proves in an indisputable manner that the Shariah and Tariqah are part and parcel of the same whole Islam; they are interdependent. If the Shariah deals with the outer body, then Tariqah deals with the inner spirit and essence. Authored by one who had mastered both.
This book serves as a beacon of guidance for the true seeker of the spiritual path and asnwers many questions that constantly arise in his inquisitive mind. It clarifies many misconceptions and misinterpretations of tasawwuf that have become common in Muslim communities.
