Details vs Essence

The details are merely servant to, not master of, the essence. And so it is with the Shar'iah and Islam.The various rules of the Shar'iah, unless carried out and implemented in a manner to serve Truth, Justice, Mercy and Compassion, which are of the essence of Islam, will be meaningless.No amount of prayer,fasting, zikr and haj is of use unless manifested in the way of Truth, Justice, Mercy and Compassion.And if it manifests itself not, does it not mean that the " Shar'iah" is used in the manner of a disloyal servant?
