The Sunna of the Prophet: People of Fiqh versus People of Hadith
[#2880 1P1** PB 162pp Dar al Taqwa, By Shaykh Muhammad Al-Ghazali, Tr. Aisha Bewley, Safeguard Sunnah]

The Sunna of the Prophet
The People of Fiqh versus the People of Hadith
By Shaykh Muhammad al-Ghazali
Translation By Aisha Bewley
Paperback 162 Pages

Published By DAR AL-TAQWA

Having published the abridged English translation of Shaykh Muhammad al-Ghazali's seminal Qur'anic commentary under the title Journey through the Qur'an, Dar al-Taqwa have followed it with the translation of a second important work by the shaykh about the nature of the Prophetic Sunna.
This is greatly needed in the present situation when there is so much misinformation about Islam in the media, often aided and abetted by well meaning but sometimes misguided Muslims. Using many examples and his own compendious knowledge, Shaykh Muhammad shows how many
hadiths have been misunderstood and misused to paint a distorted picture of Islam. With great courtesy and skill he points out the flaws in the positions adopted by extremists at both ends of the spectrum and allows the true picture of the balance and wisdom which in reality make up the Muhammadan Sunna to emerge.

My goal is to purify the sunna of whatever sullies it. I desire to protect Islamic culture from certain people about what whom it can be said that they seek knowledge on Saturday, teach it on Sunday, become a professor in it on Monday and by Tuesday contend with the great imam saying “We are men and they too were men.  Shaykh Muhammad Al Ghazali Preface to the Sixth Edition The Sunna of the Prophet: The People of fiqh Versus the People of Hadith

The Author Shaykh Muhammad al-Ghazali
One of the most influential Islamic scholars of the twentieth century, both as an author and in the field of Da'wa. Born at Buhayra, Egypt in 1335/1917, he received his schooling at the Alexandria Religious Institute before entering the Faculty of Usul al-Din at the University of al-Azhar.

In 1362/1943, al-Ghazali was appointed Imam and lecturer at al-Makataba al-Khadra in Cairo. He later became a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a close associate of Sheikh Hasan Al-Banna. During the early 1950s he worked for the Islamic Movement in various capacities. Subsequently his work for Islam extended over many parts of Africa, Asia. Europe and America as well as the Arab countries.

Between 1391/1971 and 1410/1989, Sheikh al-Ghazali rose through the ranks of the Egyptian Ministry of Awqaf, to become Undersecretary for Islamic Da'wa, His academic career included spells of teaching at the universities of Umm al-Qura (Makka) and Qatar: and he served as a Chairman of the Academic Council first of al-Amir 'Abd al-Qadir University, at Constantine, Algeria, and later of the international institute of Islamic Thought at Cairo

Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali published over sixty books, several of which have been published in translation. Probably the most important is "Journey through the Qur'an" (al-Tafsir al-mawdu' li-suwar al-Quran al Karim). He received many awards in recognition of his contribution to learning and Da'wa. He died in 1416/1996 while attending a conference in Saudi Arabia. Rahimahu 'Llah.
