Details:  Al-Ghazali: The Path of the Worshipful Servants to the Garden of the Lord of all the Worlds - Minhaj al-Abidin ila Jannati Rabbi 'l'-Alamin,
Paperback - 135 pages,
by Imam al-Ghazali,
Translated by Muhtar Holland.


Description:

Widely considered to to be Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali's, may Allah be pleased with him, last book, the Minhaj al-Abidin, is the summary of his Sufi 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, 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.


Reviews:

"... has long been considered one of al-Ghazali's most useful introductory works about how to overcome the numerous obstacles that stand between the believer and redemption in the afterlife. Muhtar Holland's translation is not only accurate and instructive but also fluent and a pleasure to read.---Frank Griffel, Yale University, author of al-Ghazalis Philosophical Theology.

 

"... a notable early work on Sufism and ethics, widely read in Muslim circles from the Arab regions to the Malay peninsula. Muhtar Holland has brought a skilful hand to the task of producing a precise and readable English version. This book will be appreciated by readers keen on expanding their acquaintance with Sufi literature." ---Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan Jr., Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
