The Way Of Islam



The WAY of Islam, 
really consists of four ways (or stations). These four ways are:



1. Sharia (sacred laws)

2. Tariqa (sacred path)
3. Haqiqa (divine reality)
4. Marifa (gnosis or certain knowledge of Allah)







According to Prophetic tradition (hadith):
. Sharia consists of the words of the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace,
. Tariqa consists of the actions of the Prophet,
. Haqiqa consists of the state of the Prophet, and
. Marfia consists of the secrets of the Prophet.


These four ways are very closely linked together and cannot be separated one from the other.







The Kalima (the sacred mantra of Islamic faith, La ilaha illallah) has four meanings according to these four ways.
According to Sharia the meaning is:
"There is nothing in the world that can be worshipped with certainty except Allah."

According to Tariqa the meaning is:
"There is none that can do a thing except Allah."

According to Haqiqa the meaning is:
"There is none who is sought after except Allah."

According to Marifa the meaning is:
"There is nothing existent except Allah."
