Khwaja ‘Ubaydullah al-Ahrar (q.s.): There is No Progress in the Path without Shari'ah

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Khwaja ‘Ubaydullah al-Ahrar (q.s.) stated, “The belief held by the disciples making progress in this path is the belief of Ahl as-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah.  Their riyadhat is to obey the shari’ah.  People who do not perform ‘ibadah will not receive any faydh nor will they make any progress.  The end of this path is to forget about creatures and to attain permanently to the Divine Presence.  This happiness cannot be attained without excessive affection and jadzbah, attraction.  The most powerful vehicle that will make one attain this blessing is the murshid's swuhbah.”
