Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din: [Volume 2] The Revival of the Religious Sciences Al-Ghazali Completely revised edition of Fazlul Karim’s translation
The book is a comprehensive encyclopaedia for all of a Muslim’s religious affairs, including beliefs, acts of worship, dealings and character, as well as for individual and societal welfare. Al-Ghazali's style is that of one who practices what he knows, one who is determined to rise from the dry, ordinary manner of teaching to one which encourages action. Volume two focuses on the norms of daily conduct and consists of eleven books covering 'The Rules of Eating and Drinking', 'The Secrets of Marriage', 'Earning a livelihood', 'The Lawful and the Unlawful', 'Love and Brotherhood', 'Duties to Muslims, Neighbours, Relatives', 'The Rules of Living in Seclusion' and 'The Rules and Regulations of Travelling'.
