Description from the publisher:

This Title has also been Translated as Deliverance from Error and Rescuer from Misguidance.

This is the 'spiritual autobiography' of the great Imam al-Ghazali, and describes what caused him to leave fame and fortune to undertake the spiritual path. In it, besides providing a personal history and describing the key events which led to this and flowed from it. Imam al-Ghazali takes time to repudiate the methods and logic of the philosophers and the esotericists (batiniyya) and the principles of sophistry.

Lastly he provides a section on the Reality of Prophethood and the urgent need all people have for it.

Al-Ghazali is generally acclaimed as the most influential thinker of the Classical period of Islam, in this autobiography, the Imam describes his education and his intellectual crisis, which left him so paralyzed by doubt that he gave up his academic pursuits and worldly interests as Professor at the Nizamiyah University of Baghdad (which was recognized as one of the most reputed institutions of learning in the golden era) and became a wandering ascetic. This was a process (period) of mystical transformation. Later, he resumed his teaching duties, but again left these. An era of solitary life, devoted to contemplation and writing then ensued, which led to the authorship of a number of everlasting books (Many of which have been translated in English).

About the translator

Muhtar Holland was born in 1935, in the ancient city of Durham in the North East of England.
