Description from the publisher:

Al-Ghazali on Conduct in Travel is a translation of the seventeenth book of the Revival of the Religious Sciences. In it; Ghazali explains the different outer and inner reasons for travel. Outer reasons include the pilgrimage; the search for knowledge; and the flight from danger; while inner reasons include the acquisition of virtue and the disciplining of the soul. Ghazali divides travel into four classes; and portrays the right inward and outward conduct for each. He then follows this with a practical chapter on the use of religious concessions while travelling; and concludes with a final chapter on how the traveller is to establish the proper direction and times for prayer.

Please refer to the Islamic Texts Society Al-Ghazali Series for further translations from Al-Ghazali.

Prof. Leonard Librande received a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies from McGill University in 1976. He is a professor at Carleton University in Canada.

‘…the series as a whole; [is] a significant contribution to our understanding of this key figure in Islamic intellectual thought.'Oliver Leaman; BRISMES Bulletin.
