Description from the publisher:
This collection of short wisdoms from the works of Imam al-Ghazali reflects the broad range of his brilliant intellectual thought. With an emphasis upon literary quality; concision; and concentration of meaning; each aphorism is full of value and significance and typifies the tradition of qawa'id (legal maxims) in the Islamic intellectual sciences. A commentary accompanies each maxim unraveling its wisdom.
Tastefully presented and luxurious in feel; this book is a chamber of spirituality readers will look forward to delving into.
The second title in the Treasury in Islamic Thought and Civilization series; which seeks to present clear introductions to the thought and wisdom of major Islamic intellectual figures; prepared by learned translators.
