Invocations & supplications : Book IX of The revival of the religious sciences, Iḥyāʼ ʻulūm al-dīn = Kitāb al-ad̲h̲kār waʼl-daʻawāt by Ghazzālī( Book )

26 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and Arabic and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although prayerfulness and the remembrance of God suffuse all the formal practices of Islam, there are times when the Muslim simply 'sits alone with his Lord' to repeat formulas drawn from the Qur'an and the sayings of the Prophet, seeking remission of his sins and the purification of his heart. The present volume is probably the most widely read compendium of such material, popular not only for its comprehensiveness and beauty, but also for the analytical approach of its author, who explores the psychological and spiritual effects of prayer and the celebration of God's name. The original translation by Kojiro Nakamura, now Head of the Islamic Studies Department at the University of Tokyo, has been substantially revised and augmented with 'hadith' identification

The duties of brotherhood in Islam by Ghazzālī( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This illustrated tale introduces children to the wondrous teachings from the Muslim theologian and mystic al-Ghazali (1058-1111CE) This enchanting tale illustrates how that the human heart is like a rusty mirror which, when polished through beautiful doings, is able to reflect the real essence of all things. In addition to this story is a poem by the renowned poet, Coleman Barks. Both draw on the same account found in Ghazali's The Marvels of the Heart, Book XXI, of his magnum opus, The Revival of Religious Sciences

An introduction to medieval Islamic philosophy by Oliver Leaman( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in Japanese and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an introduction to debates in philosophy within the medieval Islamic world. It discusses a number of themes which were controversial within the philosophical community of that period: the creation of the world out of nothing, immortality, resurrection, the nature of ethics, and the relationship between natural and religious law. The author provides an account of the arguments of Farabi, Avicenna, Ghazali, Averroes and Maimonides on these and related topics. His argument takes into account the significance of the conflict between faith and reason, religion and philosophy. The book sets out to show how interesting these philosophical debates are, and criticizes the view that these arguments are of no more than historical interest. -- Back cover

2 editions published in 1974 in Japanese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a study of a people in the turmoil of the modern world. The Muslim community in our day, like the rest of mankind, is in serious transition. What distinguishes it is that its members face the perplexities and opportunities of modernity as heirs of a unique tradition. Their society is characterized by a faith, Islam, and a great past. What is happening to the community and to the faith is the attempted subject of this book." [Preface]
