Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammed Taqi Usmani (Allah protect & preserve him) said,
‘The correction of the method a deed is (supposed to be) done (appropriately as per Sunna) is (the primary objective of) Shariah.
The correction of the intention (that is, it is done exclusively to please Allah) is (the sole purpose of) Tariqat.
Combination of these two, Shariah and Tariqat is the goal of (real) religion (Deen).’
