Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī, in his Book of Counsels, compiles powerful spiritual lessons and reminders, weaving hadith into direct speech and presenting it to the reader. This is a book that is intended to stir the heart to submission and mindfulness of Allah. This translation has sought to retain the literary aspects of this collection while also applying an attentive engagement with the hadith employed within.
“This short, lovely and spirituality transformative text by Imam Ghazali is an invaluable addition to the library of Islamic books in English. It is based on Ahadith Qudsiyyah. Turath is to be congratulated on another first. The Young Translators’ Program is to be congratulated on their loving and painstaking efforts.”
