Tahafut-Al-Falasifah,. Incoherence of the Philosophers. Ghazali

Tahafut-Al-Falasifah - Incoherence of the Philosophers
By Imam Al-Ghazali
Translated By Sahib Ahmad Kamali
Edited By Prof Ehsan Ashraf
Paperback - 270 Pages (Year: 2007)
Publisher : Adam publishers and distributors, New Delhi, India (English Only Version) 
ISBN: 8174355553

Al-Ghazali’s relationship with philosophy is subtle and complicated. The philosophy represented by AL-FARABI and IBN SINA (Avicenna) is, for al-Ghazali, not simply an object of criticism but also an important component of his own learning.

Imam Ghazali studied philosophy intensively while in Baghdad, composing Maqasid al falasifa (The Intentions of the Philosophers), and then criticizing it in his Tahafut al falasifa (The Incoherence of the Philosophers).

This book was considered a turning point in Islamic history, it is generally thought that from this point onwards philosophy in the Islamic world went on the decline after receiving such a crushing blow from religion in the form of al-Ghazalis writings.

This  translation is well written and presented in an English that is fairly easy to understand
Well written and well translated

Of their inability to give a rational demonstration of their Theory that the human soul is a spiritual substance which
Exists in itself; is not space-filling; is not body, or impressed upon body; and is neither connected nor Disconnected with body - as God is neither inside the world Nor outside it, or as the angels are

Refutation of their thesis that, having come into being, the Human souls cannot be destroyed; and that their everlasting Nature makes it impossible for us to conceive other Destruction

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
