Form and Spirit of Religion

Every religion, including Islam, while undergoing degeneration, results in the loss of spirit i.e. the non-physical component. The Quran highlights spirit and not form. With time, the emphasis has shifted and resulted in the prominence of form. In reality, spirit forms the real part of Islam whereas form is the relative part. Spirit results in piety, fear and love of God and therefore, true realization of God.
