Description

The Book is the English version of Imam Gazzali’s Ihya ulum-id-din. It deals with worship and divine services.

Imam Abu-Hamid al-Ghazzali is unquestionably the greatest theologian of Islam and one of is noblest and most original thinkers. He was born in 1058 AD at Tus, where he died in 1111. He reproduced in his religious experience all the spiritual phased developed by Islam.

Starting his religious life as orthodox Al-Ghazzali soon turned Sufi, and when still under twenty he had broken with all the past. In 1091 he was appointed lecturer at the Nizamiyah in Baghdad, where he become a sceptic, four years later he returned to Sufism after a terrific spiritual struggle that left him a physical wreck. Intellectualism had failed him. As a dervish he roamed form place to place enjoying peace of soul and acquiescence of mind. After about twelve years of retirement in various places, including two years of retreat in Syria and a holy pilgrimage, he returned to Baghdad to preach and teach. There he composed his master piece IHYA ULUM-ID-DIN (the revivification of the Sciences of religion).

The mysticism of this work vitalized the law, its orthodoxy leavened the doctrine of Islam. In it and such other work of his Faithful-al Ulum, Tahafut al falasifah, Iqtisad fi-al-itiqad, orthodox speculation reached its culminating point.
