About the Book
This is the first English translation of the last chapter of Al-Ghazali's Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din), widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality. After expounding his Sufi philosophy of death and showing the importance of the contemplation of human mortality to the mystical way of self-purification, Ghazali takes his readers through the stages of the future life: the vision of the Angels of the Grave, the Resurrection, the Intercession of the Prophet, and finally, the torments of Hell, the delights of Paradise and - for the elect - the beatific vision of God's Countenance.
About this CD Set
During the Deen Intensive Rihla in Abiquiu, New Mexico, students studied the fortieth book of Imam al-Ghazali's magnum opus, the Revival of the Religious Sciences with the translator of the text, and Ghazali expert Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (Dr. T.J. Winter). In this live classroom recording, Shaykh Abdal Hakim's illuminating and penetrating commentary is preserved and made accessible for students everywhere. The depth of Imam al-Ghazali's work and the gravity of the subject itself provide spiritual insights and a stark reminder for those who wish to reflect and ponder on humanity's unified inevitable destiny.
