SECRETS AND WISDOM
The way of discovery of the secrets and wisdoms underlying the Ahkaam (Laws of the Shariat) is not enquiring from the Ulama. The responsibility of the Ulama is to apprize of and explain the laws. It is not their responsibility to explain mysteries and wisdoms.
The only, sure way of gaining knowledge of the secrets and wisdoms of the Ahkaam is to sincerely give practical expression to the laws. This will lead to Divine Proximity which will result in the spiritual heart becoming enlightened with nooraaniyat (spiritual lustre and radiance). The revelation of the Asraar (secrets and wisdoms) is thus attainable only by way of Qurb (Divine Proximity) and Noor.
