My first ever reading of Al-Ghazali. The discourse is beautiful. A lesson that stood out and is relatively easy for me to incorporate in my life is: "O disciple, knowledge without action is madness and action without knowledge is void. I am not ready for it yet. I also feel that I will be coming back to it as I mature and I definitely know that My first ever reading of Al-Ghazali.
I also feel that I will be coming back to it as I mature and I definitely know that it has much more to offer than a first superficial reading. Short, concise and brilliant. The actual letter is only about pages if you just count the translation but has number of great points that one can act on and leave you thinking for a long time. The preface and the introduction are also pretty good and give a great historical and biographical introduction to Ghazali.
View 1 comment. The introduction and preface will take you longer to read than the actual book itself. Don't be fooled by it's size though, there's plenty of ideas to reflect on. The preface alone draws a number of similarities between Al Ghazali and other philosophers. Who knew Ghazali questioned reason itself and became a sceptic hundreds of years before Descartes? I also like the poetry quoted throughout. On Action, Ghazali quotes: Though thou pour two thousand measures of wine, Unless thou drink, no oblivion i The introduction and preface will take you longer to read than the actual book itself.
On Action, Ghazali quotes: Though thou pour two thousand measures of wine, Unless thou drink, no oblivion is thine! It's a short book to read on your hammock during these lazy summer days.
Why 5 stars? It is up there for one of the most practical and essential pieces of writing one can have. Some of the wisdom in this writing Be not bankrupt of good deeds, nor void of [spiritual] status. Know for certain that abstract knowledge alone will neither increase you in power nor strengthen your situation. Likewise, if a brave warrior in possession of ten Indian swords and other weapons was alone in the wilderness, and a great ferocious lion attacked him, do you think the Why 5 stars?
Likewise, if a brave warrior in possession of ten Indian swords and other weapons was alone in the wilderness, and a great ferocious lion attacked him, do you think the weapons could defend him if they were not used against the lion?
It is well known that arms cannot defend people unless they are brought into use. By the same principle, if a man read a hundred thousand scientific theories, they would be of no use to him if he did not try and apply them ". This took just an hour to read but is one of those pieces of works that should be revised constantly.
Having spent the last few months reading a dullish lengthy piece of work it was refreshing to read something so benefiting and mind provoking in such a short period of time.
The author Imam Al Ghazali was a theologian at the highest level and is regarded amongst the religious and even the non religious for his works. Strongly recommend. Planning to re-read this one and maybe study it a bit more. Quick and precise, al-Ghazali provides his "beloved son" or student with cup fulls of wisdom. With al-Ghazali's sources coming from the Qur'an, the Sunnah and from other learned men, al-Ghazali illuminates critical advice for any one who seeks "The Path".
Amassing of knowledge is not the goal, as al-Ghazali elucidates, but rather preparing one's self and soul for the Final End. Meaningful and useful to all. This book is a collection of letters he wrote to his disciplines. Its a quick read however the message is deep. Al Ghazali emphasises on doing good deeds, gaining knowledge and this knowledge must also be put into action.
Beautifully written! Even now after more than years, this short yet incredibly relevant classic speaks to the modern individual with clarifying thought. It distills the need for practicality behind the search for knowledge, all while, placing it behind the specter of the impermanence of life.
A thought provoking work, and one to refer to often. This book is outstanding. The great Imam al-Ghazali rA imparts twenty four pieces of valuable wisdom to the reader. I had intended to read one piece of advice a day, but after I read the first I couldn't put the book down; definitely a must read. A very quick and extremely insightful book. You can implement these pieces of advice right away.
If you enjoy Ghazali's work then you'll enjoy this short book. You'll likely re-read it several times. Concise yet full of massive message to mankind, especially for the true seeker of knowledge. A life-changing book that i will carry with me anywhere i go and to read it whenever i feel 'lost' in this challenging modernist realm. I found this book benefical and would advise it be read over a course of 24 days One peiece of advice per day.
