Spirituality is not about abstract thinking and metaphors.
Spirituality is about the journey towards excellence in everything – including faith, worship, social relations and character. People claiming insight into spirituality, yet finding excuses to avoid the Sunnah or any moral or legal obligation are pretenders not sufis.
If you want to study the spirituality of Rumi and Jami and their like, look at their lives, not just half-quotes.
– Shaykh Imran bin Munir Husayn Hafizu Llah
