' (Minhaj al-'Abidin ila Jannati Rabbi ’l-'Alamin
) by ''Hujjat al-Islam
'' - (The Truth of Islam) al-Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him
The authour tells us how he implored Allah “to make it possible for me to compose a book—one that would meet with unanimous approval, and the reading of which would result in positive benefit—and He inspired me with a marvelous arrangement, the like of which I did not recall in any of the previous compositions dealing with the secrets of religious practices.”
and He knows best the rightly guided, wa Huwa A'lamu bi'l-Muhtadin
He also said, “Worshipful service is the fruit of knowledge, the benefit of life, the income of strong servants, the stock-in-trade of the saints [awliya'
], the path of the truly devout, the allotted portion of the mighty, the goal of those endowed with aspiration, the emblem of the noble, the vocation of real men, and the choice of those with faculties of vision. It is the way of good fortune and the path [minhaj
] of the Garden of Paradise.” Table of Contents
