Description :


Widely considered to to be Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali's last book, the Minhaj al-Abidin (The Best Way for the Worshippers), is the summary of his  philosophy which charts the pitfalls and obstacles to be overcome in order to enter the kingdom of Heaven.


Dictating his words to a group of elect students, Imam al-Ghazali acknowledges his own nearness to death and instructs seekers of eternal life to resist hindrances such as fear and impairments such as conceit in order to find salvation in the essentials of God.



This book covers the following seven hurdles for the seeker;

    *** The Hurdle  of Knowledge,
    *** The Hurdle of Repentance,
    *** The Hurdle of Impediments,
    *** The Hurdle of Hindrances,
    *** The Hurdle of Incentives,
    *** The Hurdle of Impairments,
    *** The Hurdle of Gratitude.



This book is considered by many as a summary of Imam al Ghazali's magnum opus al-Ihya Ulum ud Din (The Revival of the Religions Sciences ) which is widely regarded as one of the great works for the Self-Development of Muslims and has for centuries been a widely read and respected work in the Muslim world.



Imam al-Ghazali says in his Introduction:


'We therefore looked into the subject of worshipful service, and made a careful study of its path, from its beginnings to its destinations, which are the desired goals of its travellers. It is indeed a rugged path and a hard road, fraught with many obstacles, serious hardships, remote distances, enormous difficulties, frequent hindrances and impediments. It is beset with deadly perils and interruptions, abounding in enemies and highway robbers, and offering very few companions and followers. This is exactly how it needs to be, since it is the Path of the Garden of Paradise, and this represents a confirmation of the saying of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. '
 

This book is considered by many as a summary of the 'Revival of the Religious Sciences' (Ihya Ulum al-Din) of the Imam and the last book from the sea of Imam al-Ghazali's works. Imam al-Ghazali dictated this book to a very few and selected students in his very last days.




Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (d. 1111/d.505h) also referred to as 'Hujjat al-Islam' the Proof of Islam. Al-Ghazali was a leading scholar, jurist, and theologian of the golden age of Islam, and he remains its truest advocate in modern times.


As a teacher of both inward and outward faith, he recorded numerous practical teachings to enhance the self-development of Muslims.
