Al-Ghazali, T. J. Winter

Paperback

9781911141013

 

Book 40 of the Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din)

 

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.

 

‘I warmly recommend Winter’s translation to everyone interested in Islamic eschatology and Islamic thought.’ - Annemarie Schimmel, Journal of Islamic Studies.
