Product Description

Paperback - 144 pages                                           Translated by: Abdullah bin Hamid Ali


In this book, Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali May Allah be pleased with him 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 specualative theologians 
(mutakallimun)and traditionalists (ahl al-hadith) for centuries, speculative theology(kalam) and figurative interpretation (ta'wil) remain a lively source of contention amongst Muslims today. Traditionalists 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 scriptual 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 forebears (Salaf). 

Imam Ghazali 
May Allah be pleased with him here warns with great details about the detriments of engaging in polemical theology. 

Complete with explanatory notes, this translation is a great contribution to English readers.
