Product Description

In A Return to Purity in Creed, Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazzali proves, once again, to be a man of the times by striking a balance between two extremes and refocusing the common Muslim on the simplistic beauty of the Islamic doctrine as learned and transmitted by the early Muslim community. Largely debated between speculative theologians (mutakallimun) and traditionists (ahl al-hadith) for centuries, speculative theology (kalam) and figurative interpretation (ta'wil) remain a very lively source of contention among Muslims today. Traditionists have remained loyal in their opposition to rational pursuits in theology and claim the mantle of orthodoxy in creed. The speculative theologians, while having strong rational and scriptural support for their views, still struggle to convince a considerable sector of the Muslim populace that their understanding is not a departure from the creed of the pious forbears (salaf) Abdullah bin Hamid Ali, translator and annotator of The Attributes of God (Amal press), does well in his choice to follow up that uniquely resourceful english rendition of The Attributes of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars It' Imam Ghazali!!! 31 Aug 2012
By Mohammed Mirza - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
