Imam Al-Ghazali On The Elucidation of The Marvels of the Heart

R 449

DESCRIPTION:

This is a translation of the book Kitab Sharh 'Aja'ib al-Qalb'(On the Elucidation of the Marvels of the Heart). The original Arabic volume is Book XXI (21) of the classic work Ihya 'Ulum al-Din' (the Revival of the Religious Sciences), which was written by Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali.

To appreciate the value of this book, there are no better words than Imam an-Nawawi who said that if all the books of Islam disappeared except The Book of Allah and the Ihya, it would suffice you.
This volume elucidates the marvels of the heart. The Imam deals authoritatively with the heart's diseases and their cures.

Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (also pronounced as Ghazali) is one of the Gifts of Allah to this Ummah. Illustrative of this is that our scholars have titled him Hujjatul-Islam - The Proof of Islam. He was born in Tus in 450 Hijri and passed away in 505 Hijri. A great mujtahid who wrote extensively on many of the Islamic disciplines. His works are regarded by the 'Ulama as the advanced texts of each discipline. His masterpieces include al-Mustasfa min 'ilm 'al-Usul, Tahafut al-Falsafiyyah, al-Wajiz and of course Ihya 'Ulum al-Din. To appreciate the value of this book I find no better words than Imam an-Nawawi who said that if all the books of Islam disappeared except the Book of Allah and the Ihya, it would suffice you.

This is the first volume from our Ihya 'Ulum Al-Din Series. We hope to bring out many more Subic volumes from this. The present volume elucidates the marvels ('Aja'ib) of the heart (Qalb). The Imam deals authoritatively with the hearts diseases and their cures.

This is a classic Sufi manual on the 'science of the heart.'

For Sufis, the 'heart' is more than a piece of flesh, it is the seat of the soul, and holds the key to the intimate relationship which exists between soul and body. Each heart, according to this traditional wisdom accumulated over centuries of spiritual practice and experience, possesses four qualities:

  1. Predatory
  2. Animal
  3. Demonic
  4. Divine

The latter represents our true origin and potential, and by use of the intelligence and spiritual practices enabled by God's grace, we may restore equilibrium to our inner core. 
'Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.‚Äč' (Qur'an 13:28)
