Description :

'Al-Ghazali on Conduct in Travel' is a translation of the seventeenth book of the Revival of the Religious Sciences - the Ihya Ulum al-Din. In it, Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, explains the different outer and inner reasons for travel. Outer reasons include the pilgrimage, the search for knowledge, and the flight from danger; while inner reasons include the acquisition of virtue and the disciplining of the soul.

Imam al-Ghazali divides travel into four classes, and portrays the right inward and outward conduct for each. He then follows this with a practical chapter on the use of religious concessions while travelling, and concludes with a final chapter on how the traveller is to establish the proper direction and times for prayer.

Prof. Leonard Librande received a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies from McGill University in 1976. He is a professor at Carleton University in Canada.
