Description :

Mukashafah al-Qulub al Muqarrib Ila Hadrah 'Allam al -Ghuyub,
English Translation of the abridged version of  Mukashafah al-Qulub al-Akbar.

Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, is well known for his writings on philosophy, reformation, rectification and the purification of the heart. This book is no exception to these subjects. As the title suggests, Imam Ghazali lays open the heart and exposes it's diseases, ailments, maladies, virtues, merits and values. In doing so, he proves that the heart is capable of both good and evil, and that it is upon us to either cleanse and purify it, or to soil and contaminate them. Purification of the heart would lead to a life of peace, tranquility, satisfaction, paradise, and the eventual pleasure of Allah. On the other hand, contamination of the heart would lead to a life of stress, tension, constant fear, dissatisfaction, Hellfire, and the displeasure of Allah.

Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says, 'On that day nothing will benefit the human-being, neither wealth nor children, only the one who brings Allah a sound heart.' A sound heart is one that is free of defects and spiritual blemishes. Though the spiritual heart is centered in the physical heart, the heart being referred to here is the spiritual heart, not the physical heart. Imam Ghazali provides copious proofs from the Qur'an, Hadith and sayings of the pious. This, most certainly increases the value and benefit of the book.

This book is a must-read for those who wish to understand the virtues and diseases of the heart, and wish to adopt the correct measures on the path of purification and reformation.
