Holland: Al-Baz Publishing , 99p. Das Buch der Ehe. Kitab adabi n-nikah. Das Partial translation by M. Translated by D. ISBN: As a scholar of orthodox Islam, he belonged to the Shafi'i school of Islamic jurisprudence and to the Asharite school of theology.

He is viewed[ by whom? However, he chose a slightly-different position in comparison with the Asharites.

His beliefs and thoughts differ in some aspects from the orthodox Asharite school. The encounter with skepticism led al-Ghazali to embrace a form of theological occasionalism , or the belief that all causal events and interactions are not the product of material conjunctions but rather the immediate and present Will of God.

In the next century, Averroes drafted a lengthy rebuttal of al-Ghazali's Incoherence entitled The Incoherence of the Incoherence ; however, the epistemological course of Islamic thought had already been set. While it might seem as though a natural law was at work, it happened each and every time only because God willed it to happen—the event was "a direct product of divine intervention as any more attention grabbing miracle".

Shaykh Muhammad al Ghazali

Averroes , by contrast insisted while God created the natural law, humans "could more usefully say that fire caused cotton to burn—because creation had a pattern that they could discern. The book took aim at the falasifa, a loosely defined group of Islamic philosophers from the 8th through the 11th centuries most notable among them Avicenna and Al-Farabi who drew intellectually upon the Ancient Greeks.

This long-held argument has been criticized. George Saliba in argued that the decline of science in the 11th century has been overstated, pointing to continuing advances, particularly in astronomy, as late as the 14th century. Though appreciating what was valid in the first two of these, at least, he determined that all three approaches were inadequate and found ultimate value only in the mystical experience and insight the state of prophecy or nubuwwa [ citation needed ] he attained as a result of following Sufi practices.

William James , in Varieties of Religious Experience , considered the autobiography an important document for "the purely literary student who would like to become acquainted with the inwardness of religions other than the Christian" because of the scarcity of recorded personal religious confessions and autobiographical literature from this period outside the Christian tradition. It covers almost all fields of Islamic sciences: fiqh Islamic jurisprudence , kalam theology and sufism.

The Ihya became the most frequently recited Islamic text after the Qur'an and the hadith.


Its great achievement was to bring orthodox Sunni theology and Sufi mysticism together in a useful, comprehensive guide to every aspect of Muslim life and death. After the existential crisis that caused him to completely re-examine his way of living and his approach to religion, Al-Ghazali put together The Alchemy of Happiness [43] to reassert his fundamental belief that a connection to God was an integral part of the joy of living.

The book is divided into four different sections. The first of these is Knowledge of Self, where Al-Ghazali asserts that while food, sex, and other indulgences might slake humans appetites temporarily, they in turn make a human into an animal, and therefore will never give true happiness and fulfillment.

The Confessions of Al Ghazzali by Ghazzali

Here he states that the world is merely a place where humans learn to love God, and prepare for the future, or the afterlife, the nature of which will be determined by our actions in this phase of our journey to happiness [43]. The final section is Knowledge of the Future World, which details how there are two types of spirits within a man: the angelic spirit and the animal spirit. Al-Ghazali details the types of spiritual tortures unbelievers experience, as well as the path that must be taken in order to attain spiritual enlightenment [43].

This book serves as a culmination of the transformation Ghazali goes through during his spiritual awakening. The second chapter has a more specific focus: sexual satisfaction and gluttony. The ultimate goal that Ghazali is presenting not only in these two chapters, but in the entirety of The Revival of the Religious Sciences, is that there must be moderation in every aspect of the soul of a man, an equilibrium.

Al-Ghazali essentially formulates two main arguments for what he views as a sacrilegious thought process.


Central to the Aristotelian approach is the concept that motion will always precede motion, or in other words, a force will always create another force, and therefore for a force to be created, another force must act upon that force. Ghazali counters this by first stating that if the world was created with exact boundaries, then in its current form there would be no need for a time before the creation of the world by God.

Although these proofs would go on to be disproved by individuals such as Sir Isaac Newton Laws of Motion , The Eternity of the World would have a major impact on the beliefs of Muslim scholars and philosophers up to the present day. Ghazali veers from the often hardline stance of many of his contemporaries during this time period and states that as long as one believes in the Prophet Muhammad and God himself, there are many different ways to practice Islam and that any of the many traditions practiced in good faith by believers should not be viewed as heretical by other Muslims.

It is one of the outstanding works of 11th-century-Persian literature. The book was published several times in Tehran by the edition of Hussain Khadev-jam, a renowned Iranian scholar. The language and the contents of some passages are similar to the Kimyaye Sa'adat.

The second part differs considerably in content and style from the well-known writings of al-Ghazali. The book was most probably written during the last years of his life. The introduction to the book relates that Al-Ghazali wrote the book in response to a certain king who had asked him for advice. Ay farzand O son!

The book was early translated to Arabic entitled ayyuhal walad. Faza'ilul al-anam min rasa'ili hujjat al-Islam is the collection of letters in Persian that al-Ghazali wrote in response to the kings, ministers, jurists and some of his friends after he returned to Khorasan.

The longest letter is the response to objections raised against some of his statements in Mishkat al-Anwar The Niche of Light and al-Munqidh min al-dalal Rescuer from Error.

The first letter is the one which al-Ghazali wrote to Sultan Sanjar presenting his excuse for teaching in Nizamiyya of Nishapur ; followed by al-Ghazali's speech in the court of Sultan Sanjar. Al-Ghazali makes an impressive speech when he was taken to the king's court in Nishapur in , giving very influential counsels, asking the sultan once again for excusing him from teaching in Nizamiyya.

The sultan was so impressed that he ordered al-Ghazali to write down his speech so that it will be sent to all the ulemas of Khorasan and Iraq. Influence[ edit ] This section needs more complete citations for verification.
