    Are rituals of worship merely physical acts? No There is to it but then how do we seek it and even then truly acuire it? This is an essential theme of this important work by al Ghazali He wishes to open our eyes to the deeper meanings of worship by embodying true guidance that will lead us to sincere good works refrain us from acts of poor moral character all the while pointing us in the right direction we ought to take in our daily routines The topic of this book then is how to seek real guidance How to start well with it travel and endure well through it and end well with a meaningful fully realized end You should know before all else that guidance which is the fruit of knowledge has a beginning and end an outward aspect and inward essence Today in an era of immediacy and impatience to acuire the benefits of the end game without first breaking the surface is common We like to dabble in this or that but when it comes down to putting in real sweat euity we take the path of least resistance and turn our heads to look to easier horizons in the end never getting to any purposeful good end at all But al Ghazali goes on to say there is no way to arrive at the end without first mastering the beginning What this implies primarily in context of deen is to first master the outward aspect worship before realizing its inward essence The inner essence the kernel of true spiritual meaning will not be wholly realized without first establishing its outer component in character and practiceThe book is broken down into three parts starting with the etiuette of daily acts of worship and establishing a spiritual routine It moves onto awareness of the sins of the limbs the implications associated with it and conseuently how to refrain from them Finally it deals with the etiuette on companionship with the Creator and the creation or in other words your relationship with God This translation is worthy of the classroom and the home library Since it's direct and straight to the point a pious teacher with a deeper knowledge and experience base in deen will provide greater benefit by unpacking the profound meanings al Ghazali imparts as their comments of spiritual experiences may open up a specific truth to some of those inner meanings Most of us already know we’re beginners on the Path by virtue alone of viewing a religious book entitled the “Beginning of Guidance” and we may conclude that we don’t know what it truly means to attain the inner meanings of worship So this book is best taught with a pious teacher worthy of teaching it It's a book with the aim of spiritual conversion from worship to higher worship from the heedlessness of one already submitted to greater awareness of humility and servitude from novice to masterly worship And for al Ghazali it only starts by acuiring knowledge from seeking guidance which is the essential subject of this book a book on how to seek guidance Knowledge is like at tree and worship is like the fruits of the tree So ripen the fruits well and taste from its sweetness

    Mashallah Imam Ghazali's Beginning of Guidance elouently details a regiment for acuiring god consciousness He lays out a daily timetable in which he exemplifies the proper decorum of a spiritually upright Muslim Afterwards he expands on the duties of obedience that the creation must adopt the acts of refraining from disobedience and conduct with the Creator and creationImam Ghazali's works are still being discussed and dissected after 900 years of his passing Imagine the immense good he has brought to the world and his contributions His goodreads biography lists him as a 'Mujaddid' A rare figure who has appeared to restore the Islamic faith and to rectify any shortcomings of the scholarship MashallahThe appendix includes some powerful and spiritually uplifting dua's So meticulous humble and elegant I shall now procede to list some uotes from the author himself Make your greatest effort that He not find you present where He has forbidden you to be nor find you absent from where He has commanded you to be Because sleep is an interruption to life unless being awake is a burden for your in which case your being asleep is safer for your religion Contemplate how it is that you bear hardship and humility in your pursuit of this world for a month or a year in order to gain rest and relaxation for say twenty years How then is it that you cannot bear a few short days of this routine of worship to attain rest and relaxation for eternity Know that you disobey Allah Most High with your limbs while they are a bounty from Allah and a trust to you Know that on the Day of Judgement you will not be asked Why did you NOT curse or insult So and So? Or Why were you silent regarding So and So? Moreover if you never once in your entire life curse Iblis or even make mention of him you would not be uestioned about it But if you curse someone you will be held responsible for it and be uestioned about it Protect your tongue from eight things1 Lying2 Breaking a Promise3 Backbiting4 Disputation Argumentation and Competitive Debate with People5 Ascribing Goodness to Oneself6 Cursing7 Supplication against Creation8 Jesting Ridiculing and Making Fun of People O my son if you wish to befriend someone take as your friend a person who if you serve him protects and preserves you; if you spend time with him beautifies you by his company; and if you are in financial need provides for you Take as your friend one who if you extend your hand toward something good assists you in it; if he sees you do something good appreciates and remembers it; but if he sees you doing something bad stops you from doing it Take as your friend one who when you say something believes you; when you attempt something accepts your leadership; and if you should dispute about something prefers you to himself

    Islam is about refining the individual's character with adab etiuette There are many Muslims today who are very knowledgeable about Islam but lack proper adab when interacting and dealing with other people In this book Imam al Ghazali explains the essence of tawa then emphasizes the importance of having the proper adab with Allah and His creations and instructs the seeker of sacred knowledge in the behavior and practices expected of himAny Muslim who seeks to improve the self must have a copy of this book in their shelfOne must make it habit to always reread this book until they master its contents

    Imām Abū Ḥāmid al Ghazālī d 5051111 wrote this work for one of his students as a simplified version of his magnus opus the Revival of the Religious Sciences Ihya' Ulum al Din In this short treatise Imām al Ghazālī gives you steps on how to acuire God consciousness tawā He says If you then ask `What is the beginning of guidance that I may test myself thereby?' know that its beginning is the outward form of God consciousness and its end is the inward reality of God consciousness and this can only be achieved by following the command of Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla Imām al Ghazālī followed the Shāfiʿī School hence when he expounds the etiuette of ritual prayer; it is according to the Shāfiʿī School The publishers however include notes for the difference in method in accordance with the Ḥanafī School where applicable which is really helpful It also includes the original Arabic parallel to the English which is translated by Mashhad al Allaf Though this is one of Imām al Ghazālī's shorter treatises it is regarded as one of the most useful for seekers of a successful and organised moral life It consists of three parts1 On Obedience2 On Refraining From Disobedience3 The Etiuette of Companionship with the Creator and CreationThe first part covers the etiuette of waking from sleep using the lavatory ablution seeking knowledge prayer and many such aspects For example it tells you what duʿāʾ to make when waking up or during your wuḍūʼ and how to spend your time efficiently as well as how to conduct yourself during prayers and how to prepare for them and many other beneficial acts The second part contains advice on how to refrain from committing sins with the limbs eyes ears tongue stomach etc as well as the heart envy arrogance ostentation etc It's really helpful as sometimes we become creatures of habit and we don't even realise we're doing such things like listening or talking about the faults of others it is a reminder that your tongue is the greatest means of your destruction in this world and the next The final part relates to etiuette with God scholars students parents and others as well as advice on friendship In these three sections the imām says This amount of advice should be enough for you dear young one and I couldn't agree You can relate to the words of Imām al Ghazālī almost as though he wrote the advice specifically for you He makes you uestion and keep in check your intentions whether that relates to seeking knowledge performing your prayers or making friends Personally nothing spoke to me louder than when I read A prayer in congregation is twenty seven times better than a prayer alone If you are negligent of such a profitable act then what benefit is there for you in the pursuit of knowledge? After all the fruit of knowledge is acting upon it The imām says You will never be capable of this unless you manage your time and organise your routine of worship from morning to night A person who leaves himself without a plan as animals do not knowing what he is to do at any given moment will spend most of his time fruitlessly Every single breath of yours is a priceless jewel because it is irreplaceable So do not be like fools who rejoice each day as their wealth increases while their lives decrease If your lower self asks you to leave off the litanies and remembrance we have detailed earlier then know that Satan the accursed has injected into your heart the hidden illness love of prestige and wealthThis really is a magnificent work for acuiring guidance through tawā If everyone abided by the counsel given here then the world would be a better place Though the advice is from almost over a thousand years ago it is still relevant today as it was then and this is why Imām al Ghazālī has so many works translated in to English he transcends time It will amaze you at how lightly things are taken today from backbiting to fasting Even when you think you're doing something good your intention must be correct and even then it may actually be harmful as Satan is always trying to entice foolish people to evil by presenting it to them as goodness You are even reminded that if your nature is dominated by disputation and silence is difficult for you then you're associating with the pseudo jurists of your time and looking at yourself with an eye of satisfaction is the height of foolishness and the epitome of ignorance for to seek a place in the hearts of people by which you may attain fame and veneration is hidden shirk and Imām al Ghazālī sums up his advice for section two with the ḥadīth of the Prophet Muhammad ṣallā Allāhu ʿalayhi wasallam Love of this world is the cause of every sin This was one of Imām al Ghazālī's final works hence as per the description by the publishers it embodies a lifetime of learning experience and spirituality If you're in need of motivation a spiritual increase or maintenance read this work and it may give you the boost it gave me The advice is timeless and beneficial

    Garsh So I'm going on an Imam Ghazali marathon here somehow No idea if the other 5 or 6 books are on goodreads but yeah lets see how long this binge will lastI started reading this and was impressed because it combines spirituality and fih the how to's of Islam from the Shafi madhab so making the best of prayer worship and avoiding sins and keeping yourself away from pride and slandering people It's the basics of Islam with a Sufi approach in mind In short Teaches you how to be a practicing Muslim WITHOUT BEING A JERKI like the duas in this book so many I've never come across This is great for the new Muslim or for the convert Muslim or the newly practicing Muslim Its refreshing since he gives a nice slap in the face from time to time using logic to show how we think stupid things about religion So you get the whole kitten kaboodle here spirituality Sufism Islamic law fih and brains al I googled to see if my favorite part of this book was online uoted somewhere and found it here Really powerful
