Description from the publisher:

Al-Ghazali on Vigilance and Self-examination is the thirty-eighth chapter of the Revival of the Religious Sciences and follows on from Al-Ghazali on Intention; Sincerity & Truthfulness. Here Ghazali focuses on the different stations of steadfastness in religion (murabata); vigilance and self-examination being its cornerstones. As in all his writings; Ghazali bases his arguments on the Qur'an; the example of the Prophet and the sayings of numerous scholars and Sufis.

Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111); theologian; logician; jurist and mystic; was born and died in 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 chapter; has exercised a profound influence on Muslim intellectual history by exploring the mystical significance of the practices and beliefs of Islamic orthodoxy; earning him the title of Hujjat al Islam; the ‘Proof of Islam'.

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