The Inseparability Of Shari'a & Tariqa - Islamic Law And Purification Of The Heart
How did Islamic law develop?
What Are the Foundations of Islamic Jurisprudence?
What is the relationship between Shari'a and Tariqa?
What is Taqlid and does it still hold relevant in our time?
Which sciences must be mastered before one can interpret the Quran and hadith?
Shari'a & Tariqa is an essential book for anyone wishing to understand the foundations and application of Islamic law, and the relationshio that purification of the heart has with traditional Islamic jurisprudence. The esteemed author, in this, his last and final work, draws evidence from the Quran, Sunna, pious predecessors, past and recent scholars, history, and rationale to clarify the confusion many have when searching for a true scholar of Islam. This book explains how many of the controversies and sectarianism within the Ummah today are born out of ignorance of both Shari'a and Tariqa.
