Going against Shariah to reach the Maqasid

Imam Shatibi -the greatest intellectual founder of Maqasid al-Shari’ah- writes:

“The objective behind Shari’ah is to liberate individuals from his desires in order to be a true Abd (slave) of Allah and that is the legitimate Maslaha… Violating the Shari’ah under the pretext of following Maqasid al-Shari’ah is like the one who cares about the spirit without the body and since the body without the spirit is useless therefore the spirit without the body is useless too.”
