Description :

'The Path of Worshippers to the Paradise of the Lord of the Universe' is an authoritative book and a guideline on practical Sufism ('irfan-i 'amali). It is also a mirror to the soul of its author.


In this book Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, speaks not only as a scholar but also as a master and sincerely shares his spiritual experiences with his readers in a simple language and an intimate tone. These qualities of the book penetrate into the depth of the heart of the reader. The importance of the book lies in the fact that its author was the most prominent theologian and jurist of his time and its teachings are as valid today as they were when the author wrote the book just before his death in 505/1111.





Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad al-Ghazzali, may Allah be pleased with him, is universally considered the most influential Muslim theologian and jurist, an original thinker, a sincere Sufi, and the greatest figure in the history of Islamic intellectual tradition.



The Translator : Mohammad H. Faghfoory teaches Islamic studies at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He has written, translated, and edited eight books and numerous articles and book chapters.
