Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani teaches from Ibn Qayyim's al-Waabil as-Sayyib:
Fiqh and Shari`ah are the shell, and spirituality is the kernel.
Allah does not inhabit the heart because it can not contain Him.
How can anything contain Allah when the whole universe is the "stuffing" of His Chair.
But Allah is in the heart of the servant who leaves everything for Him.
Ahadith on the benefits of Ramadan and its fast.
