Description :


This enchanting tale introduces both parents and children to the wondrous teachings from the world’s beloved Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, (1058-1111CE). He tells us that the human heart is like a rusty mirror, which, when polished through beautiful doings, is able to reflect the Real Essence of all things which are normally hidden behind veils.


The story beautifully told and illustrated by the acclaimed artist, Demi, and also includes a poem by the renowned poet, Coleman Barks. Both draw on the same account found in Ghazali’s Marvels of the Heart, Book XXI, of his magnum opus, the Revival of Religious Sciences (the Ihya Ulum al-Din).



"Your Real True Shining Heart gets dust on it whenever you act or speak beneath your dignity, like when you are selfish or don’t share.  What can you do to stop dust getting on your heart?


Have you noticed that sometimes you are really disappointed when things don’t work out as you had expected? Sometimes, you are impatient. Imam al-Ghazali reminds us all that God is taking care of everything and we don’t need to worry about anything. Trusting Him and being patient and loving His Will in everything that happens helps to polish our Real Hearts."



Book XXI, The Marvels of the Heart, includes a story which helps to illustrate “polishing of the Heart”. Adults may appreciate Coleman Bark’s poem on the subject as well as selections included from the grown-up translation of Book XXI, while the illustrated tale may introduce a younger audience to this key teaching of Imam al-Ghazali.
