Weekly Lecture at the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque

Prof Mustafa Abusway | November 29th, 2013 - 2:56 am

Wed. weekly lecture on Imam Al-Ghazali’s Ihya `Ulum Al-Din (The Revival of the Islamic Sciences) at the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Iḥyāʾ ʿulūm al-dīn) is widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality.
“The Revival of the Religious Sciences is divided into four parts, each containing ten chapters. Part one deals with knowledge and the requirements of faith—ritual purity, prayer, charity, fasting, pilgrimage, recitation of the Qurʾān, and so forth; part two concentrates on people and society—the manners related to eating, marriage, earning a living, and friendship; parts three and four are dedicated to the inner life of the soul and discuss first the vices that people must overcome in themselves and then the virtues that they must strive to achieve.”

Below are two links, the first is to details of the contents of the books, translations (mainly into English) and a link to the original Arabic here for the first time on the internet, and the second link is to a youtube video of one of these lectures delivered on Nov. 13, 2013:
