Description from the publisher:

Al-Ghazali on Intention; Sincerity & Truthfulness is the thirty-seventh chapter of the Revival of the Religious Sciences. It falls in the section dealing with the virtues. Here Ghazali deals with the very important subject of intention; which is of crucial importance in Islam. He asks: ‘How can someone ignorant of the meaning of intention verify his own intention; or how can someone ignorant of the meaning of sincerity verify his own sincerity; or how can someone sincerely claim truthfulness if he has not verified its meaning?'

In the Book of Intention; Sincerity & Truthfulness; Ghazali gives a response to each of these questions by expounding the reality and levels of intention; sincerity and truthfulness; those acts which affirm them and those acts which mar them. 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.

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