Description :

Dear Beloved Son is an excellent compilation of extremely valuable pieces of advice based not only on theory but on the practical experience and insight of Imam al-Ghazali. Since he presented his disciple with these pieces of advice at a stage in life where he had studied and excelled in all major sciences of Islam, it holds extra significance. He covers topics such as sincerity, knowledge, action, death, da’wah, hypocrisy, time, dhikr and Shari’ah, with delicacy and coherency, so that one is able to grasp clearly the multidimensional facets of a comprehensive Islam.

This beautiful small book by 'Hujjatul Islam'-(The Proof of Islam); Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, offers twenty four pieces of valuable advice to seekers of knowledge.  The arabic title for Dear Beloved Son is Ayyuhal Walad.


It touches on all aspects of life, from material wealth and the love of this life, to Islamic etiquette and acquiring knowledge.

Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, illustrates his ideas throughout with relevant quotations from the Qur'an and Hadith, as well as poetry and logical examples and clear analogies which demonstrates the need to cleanse ourselves of bad manners so that we can develop good characteristics.

This is certainly a powerful reminder of the importance
of constantly identifying ourselves with the next life.
