Description from the publisher:

In this work, here presented in a complete English translation for the first time, the problem of knowing God is confronted in an original and stimulating way. Taking up the Prophet's teaching that 'Ninety-nine Beautiful Names' are truly predicated of God, the author explores the meaning and resonance of each of these divine names, and reveals the functions they perform both in the cosmos and in the soul of the spiritual adept. Imam al-Ghazali never fails to attract the reader with his profound mystical and ethical insights, which, conveyed in his sincere and straightforward idiom, have made this book one of the perennial classics of Muslim thought, popular among Muslims to this day.

Pages: 131 Binding: Paperback

Description from the publisher:

This definitive treatment on the subject of prayerfulness and remembrance of God, is a translation of Book 9 of the Ihya', and is widely read not only for its comprehensiveness, but also for the analytical approach of the author, who explores the psychological and spiritual effects of prayers and the celebrations of God's names. Although prayerfulness and the remembrance of God suffuse all the formal practices of Islam, there are time when the Muslim simply 'sits alone with his lord' to repeat formulas drawn form the Quran and the sayings of the Prophet, seeking remission of his sins and the purification of the heart. The present volume, Book IX of the Revival of the Religious Sciences, is probably the most widely read compendium of such material, popular not only for its comprehensiveness and beauty, but also for the analytical approach of its author, who explorers the psychological and spiritual effects of prayer and the celebration of God's name. Abu-Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111), theologian, logician, jurist, and mystic, was born and died at the town of Tus in Central Asia, but spent much of his life lecturing at Baghdad or leading the life of a wandering dervish. His most celebrated work, of which this is an important section, has exercised a profound influence on Muslim intellectual history by exploring the mystical significance of the practices and beliefs of Islamic orthodox, earning him the title of Hujjat al-Islam, the 'proof of Islam'. The original translation by Kojiro Nakamura, now Head of the Islamic Studies Department at the University of Tokyo, has been substantially revised and augmented, with hadith identification, by T.J. Winter. General Editor of the Islamic Texts Society's at-Ghazali's series. Invocations & Supplications is the second title in this series.

Publisher: Islamic Texts Society (UK)
Pages: 224 Binding: Paperback

Description from the publisher:

The spiritual life in Islam begins with riyadat al-nafs, the inner warfare against the ego. Distracted and polluted by worldliness, the lower self has a tendency to drag the human creature down into arrogance and vice. Only by a powerful effort of will can the sincere worshiper attain that purity of soul which enables him to attain to God's proximity. This translation of two sections from "The Revival of the Religious Sciences" (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din) details the sophisticated spiritual techniques adopted by classical Islam. In the first text, "On Disciplining the Soul", which sites copious anecdotes from the Islamic scriptures and biographies of the saints, Ghazali. The translator has added an introduction and notes which explore Ghazali's ability to make use of Greek as well as Islamic ethics. The work will prove of especial interest to those interested in Sufi mysticism, comparative ethics, and the question of sexuality in Islam.

Description from the publisher:

Al-Ghazali on Love, Longing, Intimacy & Contentment is a translation of the thirty-sixth chapter of ‘The Revival of the Religious Sciences’ (Ihya’ Ulum al-Din).

This work was of radical importance to the history of Sufism and the arguments that al-Ghazali sets out in it formed the basis of the development of whole schools of Sufi theory and practice of mystical love, including the extensive Sufi poetry of Rumi and Hafiz. The text starts by elucidating the love of God for humanity and the love of man for God, and proceeds to discuss the deepening of this love to include different degrees of longing, intimacy and contentment.
