Imam Al-Ghazali: A Concise Life
by Edoardo Albert
Paperback 104 Pages
Kube Publishing (Islamic Foundation) 2012

Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali is a towering figure in Islam today. But did you know that during his lifetime he was a scholar, a saint and a penniless wanderer? In this short biography you will discover how Al-Ghazali rose from his humble background as a fatherless young boy from a small town, to become a successful student, a great teacher and the most famous Islamic thinker of his time. It also reveals why, after years of success, he left behind his prestigious position and his family, and became a penniless traveller trying to experience the peace of a content inner life.

Award-winning author, Edoardo Albert, brings this most extraordinary of Muslims to life for a new generation, demonstrating his enduring influence and importance for Islamic civilization and the wider world. With numerous extracts from Al-Ghazali’s own autobiography carefully rendered into contemporary English this book makes the man many consider to be one the most important Muslims in history accessible to all. Illustrated throughout with photographs, pictures and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Al-Ghazali is also brought vividly alive.

About Imam Ghazali

Abu Hamid Muhammad, famous in the world of learning as al-Ghazzal was born in 450 AH (1058 A.D). in Persia . He graduated from the Nizamia Madressa at Nishapur, with distinction.a very famous educational institution in Nishapur. Later he was appointed as a teacher at the Nizamia College in Baghdad, where he proved very successful in imparting knowledge to the scholars under his care. This valuable gift of sustaining interest of his pupils and passing on his knowledge to them made him so famous that students from all parts of the country flocked to study under him.
Imam al-Ghazzali was fondly referred to as the "Hujjat-ul-lslam", Proof of Islam, He is honoured as a scholar and a saint by learned men all over the world.

Al-Ghazali is generally acclaimed as the most influential thinker of the Classical period of Islam, in his autobiography The Deliverance from Error, the Imam describes his education and his intellectual crisis, which left him so paralysed by doubt that he he gave up his academic pursuits and worldly interests and became a wandering ascetic. This was a process (period) of mystical transformation. Later, he resumed his teaching duties, but again left these. An era of solitary life, devoted to contemplation and writing then ensued, which led to the authorship of a number of everlasting books(Many of which have been translated in English)

Imam al-Ghazzali's life was spent in self-sacrificing service of God and his fellowmen. He left behind him a fine example for all men to follow. He died in 505 AH
