New Release: “The Inseparability Of Shari’a & Tariqa” by Shaykh Muhammad Zakariyya al-Kandhlawi

asSalaamu Alaikum,

Over the past two years, Madania Publications has revamped their publishing by making the change to publish books with better material quality and style (glossy cover, better print, proper margins, less misprints, attractive cover images, etc.). This is very well appreciated as Islamic literature in the English language, usually translated works, often lacks the aesthetic quality which western readers are acquainted with. Therefore, readers make the mistake of dismissing the book simply due to the publication’s poor material quality and style. As a consequence, they are deprived of the academic and spiritual treasures of past and present scholars.

Madania Publications’ latest release is the well-known treatise of  Shaykh Muhammad Zakariyya al-Kandhlawi (ra) entitled The Inseparability Of Shari’a & Tariqa. Readers may be acquainted with a previous English translation and publication of this work by Darul Ishaat.

Previously on at-Tahawi, we had provided an e-copy of this book: “Shari`ah and Tariqah: Inseparable and Indivisible” – Available for Download

The ISBN for the Madania Publication is 978-1-936157-03-7, and consists of 221 pages. A brief overview of the book is provided below:

  • 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 Qur’an and Hadith
Shari’a & 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 has with traditional Islamic jurisprudence.  The esteemed author, in this last and final work [of his], 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.
