Description  :

Ihya Ulum al-Din (The Revival of the Religious Sciences) the magnum opus of Hujjat al-Islam, Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, alayhi ar-Rahman w'al-Ridwan. Al-Ghazali sought, through the Revival, to breathe life into the religious knowledge which, by his age, had become moribund due to peoples’ concern with status, fame, and comfort instead of true spiritual understanding.

The Forty Chapters of the book are organised into four major parts :

---Acts of Worship,
---Norms of Daily Life,
---Qualities Leading to Perdition,
---& Qualities Leading to Salvation.

Through his work, al-Ghazali constructs a framework by which the reader first understands the relationship between God and man, and then learns how to lead an exemplary life in this world in preparation for the journey to the afterlife.
