Description from the publisher:
Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, May Allah be pleased with him, is one of the most influential Muslim thinkers of all time, ranking among such major religious figures as Augustine, Maimonides and Aquinas.
This innovative book explores al-Ghazali's life and times and the various influences that shaped his thought and practice. Covering his contributions to politics, law, theology, mysticism and philosophy and with a particular focus on the connections between the critical issues of his time and those affecting contemporary Islam, this is a readable, thorough and up-to-date study of a key intellectual and historical figure.
An inspiring two part book that begins with a moving account, Ghazalis spiritual autobiography. The second work sets out Ghazalis views on how religious individuals should conduct their lives on a daily basis and offers great guidance.
