Description :


The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' 'ulum al-din) is widely regarded as one of the greatest works of Islamic spirituality, and is perhaps the most read work in the Muslim world, after the Noble Qur'an.

 
The Revival of the Religious Sciences is divided into four parts, each containing ten chapters. Part One deals with knowledge and the requirements of faith—ritual purity, prayer, charity, fasting, pilgrimage, recitation of the Qurʾan, and so forth.


Part Two concentrates on people and society—the manners related to eating, marriage, earning a living, and friendship. Parts Three and Four are dedicated to the inner life of the soul and discuss first the vices that people must overcome in themselves and then the virtues that they must strive to achieve.
