To ensure the stability of the institution and protect it from outside influences Hujjat al-Islam Ml. Qasim Nanotwi outlined eight core principles which are known as Usul Hashtgana. The goals of these principles seem to boil down to two distinct but interdependent objectives; (1) sincerity and (2) independence. That is the people involved should be sincere and pious and remain so. In addition, they should maintain their independence so that there is no hindrance in acquiring their objectives. The first objective (sincerity) is required for internal stability whilst the second objective (independence) is required for external stability.
