The Cambridge companion to classical Islamic theology by Timothy Winter( Book )

27 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series of critical reflections on the evolution and major themes of pre-modern Muslim theology begins with the revelation of the Koran, and extends to the beginnings of modernity in the eighteenth century. The significance of Islamic theology reflects the immense importance of Islam in the history of monotheism, to which it has brought a unique approach and style, and a range of solutions which are of abiding interest. Devoting especial attention to questions of rationality, scriptural fidelity, and the construction of 'orthodoxy', this volume introduces key Muslim theories of revelation, creation, ethics, scriptural interpretation, law, mysticism, and eschatology. Throughout the treatment is firmly set in the historical, social and political context in which Islam's distinctive understanding of God evolved. Despite its importance, Islamic theology has been neglected in recent scholarship, and this book provides a unique, scholarly but accessible introduction. -- Back cover

The remembrance of death and the afterlife = Kitāb D̲h̲ikr al-mawt wa-mā baʻdahu : book XL of The revival of the religious sciences, Iḥyāʼ ʻulūm al-dīn by Ghazzālī( Book )

18 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first English translation of a key section of al-Ghazali's Revival of the Religious Sciences, (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din), widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality. Its theme is of universal interest: death, and the life to come. After expounding his Sufi philosophy of death, and showing the importance of the contemplation of human morality to the mystical way of self-purification, al-Ghazali's takes his readers through the stages of the future life: the vision of the Angels of the Grave, the Resurrection, the Intercession of the Prophets, and finally, the torments of Hell, the delights of Paradise, and-for the elect-the beatific vision of God's Countenance. In this new edition, the Islamic Texts Society has included a translation of Imam Ghazali's own Introduction to the Revival of the Religious Sciences which gives the reasons that caused him to write the work, the structure of the whole of the Revival and places each of the chapters in the context of the others."
On disciplining the soul = Kitāb riyāḍat al-nafs, & On breaking the two desires = Kitāb kasr al-s̲h̲ahwatayn : Books XXII and XXIII of The revival of the religious sciences = Iḥyāʼ ʻulūm al-dīn by Ghazzālī( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spiritual life in Islam begins with riyadat al-nafs, the inner warfare against the ego. Distracted and polluted by worldliness, the lower self has a tendency to drag the human creature down into arrogance and vice. Only by a powerful effort of will can the sincere worshipper achieve the purity of soul which enables him to attain God's proximity. This translation of two chapters from The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din) details the sophisticated spiritual techniques adopted by classical Islam. In the first step, On Disciplining the Soul, which cites copious anecdotes from the Islamic scriptures and biographies of the saints, Ghazali explains how to acquire good character traits, and goes on to describe how the sickness of the heart may be cured. In the second part, Breaking the Two Desires, he focusses on the question of gluttony and sexual desire, concluding, in the words of the Prophet, that 'the best of all matters is the middle way'

"Considered to be the spiritual last will and testament of al-Ghazali, Letter to a Disciple is a summary of the spiritual teachings of he who was regarded as the 'Proof of Islam'.

The main ideas running throughout the work is on acquiring knowledge which is of spiritual benefit, purifying the intention, and acting on the basis of the acquired knowledge. Referring extensively to the example of the Prophet and to that of the early Sufis, al-Ghazali gives us a work of great depth, beauty and simplicity."
