An old disciple of al-Ghazali had studied the Islamic sciences, including the many works of his master, for most of his life. Faced with the proximity of death, he turns again to his master this time asking for a summary of all his teachings, and Letter to a Disciple is al-Ghazali’s response.
This is the first English translation of the last chapter of Al-Ghazali’s Revival of the Religious Sciences. It is a detailed compendium on death and what subsequently follows it, according to the Islamic tradition.
Award-winning author, Edoardo Albert, brings this most extraordinary of Muslims to life for a new generation, demonstrating his enduring influence and importance for Islamic civilization and the wider world.
