Product Description

Paperback - 316+ pages                                             Translated by:  Dr Henry Littlejohn

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

 Al-Ghazali on Patience and Thankfulness is a translation of the thirty-second chapter of The Revival of the Religions Sciences (
Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din)  

This chapter fills in the last of the four sections of the Ihya’, the section dealing with the virtues or what is conducive to salvation. Imam al-Ghazali, May Allah be pleased with him, here presents definitions for patience and its different forms; the need for patience; the degrees of patience; and why patience is considered to be half of faith.   

The second part of this chapter deals with thankfulness and again al-Ghazali, May Allah be pleased with him, gives us definitions for thankfulness, its nature and its blessings. In addition to the translation, Dr Henry Littlejohn provides an extensive introduction which illustrates the importance of the topics of patience and thankfulness in Islam throughout the centuries.
