“Arguments amongst Muslim organisations in the West, for the most part, tend to be on the level of form of religion, a level of Islam with a small ‚i‛, as it were. Sometimes of iman, almost never does one hear serious discussions of ihsan. So the religion is imbalanced in favour of the divisive possibilities of its outward forms, because the heart unifies and the law creates, not disunity, diversity. There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of fiqh dalils, each of which can be variously interpreted and provide scope for disagreement. But there is only one heart, and its argument, its dalil, is only ever one – it’s the argument that clamours for serenity, for dhikr, for remembrance of Allah (s.w.t.). That’s the only dalil that the heart has in religion.”
