Details:  Divine Love in Islamic Mysticism :
The Teachings of Al-Ghazali & Al-Dabbagh,
*[A5] Paperback - 202 pages,
by Binyamin Abrahamov,
Published by Routledge.




Description :


Divine Love in Islamic Mysticism : Contains the Teachings of Imam al-Ghazali and Imam al-Dabbagh. The two theories of divine love that are examined in this book have their foundations in Greek, Jewish, Christian and Muslim ideas. Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazâlî (twelfth century) was influenced mainly by Plato and Ibn Sina's teachings, while Imam al-Dabbâgh (thirteenth century), who accepted some Ghazâlîan notions, developed a theory of divine love that can be traced back to Neoplatonism.


Both scholars created complete theories of divine love that include definitions of love, its causes and signs, the ways to love God, God's love for man, and kinds of love. The book will interest students of theology, philosophy and mysticism in general, and students of Islam in particular.





Binyamin Abrahamov received his Ph.d summa cum laude from Tel Aviv University in 1982. Since 1995 he has been Associate Professor of Islamic theology and Qur'anic studies at Bar-Ilan University.
