Starting with the book, it's not too thick so it looked like it was going to be a quick read. However when I purchased this book I was pretty new to Imam Ghazali's work. It was not a quick read at all. When reading Imam Ghazali's work I realized I was going to have to read it twice to understand what his point was. Well when you start to understand what he means it really gets you. Imam Ghazali was a very deep individual and his books kind of put you down for not being a good person but then at the same time put light within your body because you know you will try to be better.
In this book Imam Ghazali (May Allah Bless Him) talks about what he faces in his lifetime. Aqida or Creed, I do not want to spoil this for readers but I can guarantee one thing. YOU WILL LOVE IT. I have been reading Imam Ghazali's books more and more and even though they are sometimes difficult to understand I know it is worth it.
