This short volume, written by one of the world’s leading experts on Imam
al-Ghazali, comprises forty gems from al-Ghazali's inexhaustible
treasury of writings, that give the modern reader insights into both the
richness of al-Ghazali's thought, and how they can better help us
understand Islam today.Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali
(d. 505/1111) has been described by some scholars as the greatest Muslim in Islamic history. His prolific works, written over the duration of his relatively short lifetime, have deeply influenced Islamic thought for nearly a thousand years. Al-Ghazālī was a polymath who had mastered every discipline known to the scholars of his time. In many ways, his corpus of writings on law, theology, philosophy, and Islamic spirituality, represent the most influential understanding of the Islamic religion ever articulated.Mustafa Abu Sway
is the first holder of the Integral Chair for the Study of Imam Ghazālī’s Work at the Aqsa Mosque and at Al-Quds University in Jerusalem, Palestine. He has been Professor of Philosophy and Islamic Studies at the university since 1996. In addition to numerous academic appointments at Asian and American universities, at the Aqsa Mosque, he teaches Imam al-Ghazālī’s greatest work, Ihya Ulum al-Din,
the Revival of the Religious Sciences, dedicated to reviving the spiritual disciplines that lie at the heart of Islam.Table of Contents
