‘To counsel others is an easy matter, the difficulty is accepting advice since it is bitter for those who follow their own inclination and desire. They love the forbidden from the depth of their hearts. This is more applicable to seekers of knowledge and students of learning, those of them who are busy with the benefits of the world They believe that mere abstract knowledge, without proper action, will rescue them. This is the belief of the philosophers’
[Extract from Dear Beloved Son]
Weekend course on the monumental book by Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali which offers twenty four pieces of valuable advice to seekers of knowledge. It touches on all aspects of life, from material wealth and the love of this life, to Islamic etiquette and acquiring knowledge.
Imam Al-Ghazali illustrates his ideas throughout with relevant quotations from the Qur’an and Hadith, as well as poetry and logical examples and clear analogies which demonstrates the need to cleanse ourselves of bad manners so that we can develop good characteristics. This is certainly a powerful reminder of the importance of constantly identifying ourselves with the next life.
