Sharia & Tariqa: Islamic Law and Purification of the Heart

by Shaykh al-Hadith Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhelwi

How did Islamic law develop?

What are the foundations of Islamic Jurisprudence?

What is taqlid and does it still hold relevance in our time?

What is the relationship between Shari’a and Tariqa [Tasawwuf]?

Which sciences must be mastered before one can interpret Qur’an or Hadith?


Sharia and Tariqa is an essential book for anyone wishing to understand the foundations and application of Islamic Law, and the relationship that purification of the heart [Tasawwuf] has with traditional Islamic jurisprudence. The esteemed author, in this, his last and final work, draws evidence from the Qur’an; Sunna; Pious Predecessors; past and recent scholars; history; and rationale to clarify the confusion many have about what to look for 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 Tasawwuf.
