Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali is a towering figure in Islam today. But did you know that during his lifetime he was a scholar, a saint and a penniless wanderer? In this short biography you will discover how Al-Ghazali rose from his humble background as a fatherless young boy from a small town, to become a successful student, a great teacher and the most famous thinker on Islam of his time. It also reveals why, after years of success, he left behind his prestigious position and his family, and became a penniless traveller trying to experience the peace of a content inner life.

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. With numerous extracts from Al-Ghazali’s own autobiography carefully rendered into contemporary English this book makes the man many consider to be one the most important Muslims in history accessible to all. Illustrated throughout with photographs, pictures and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Al-Ghazali is also brought vividly alive.

 

About Author:

Edoardo Albert is a writer of Sri Lankan and Italian extraction based in London. He specialises in religion, travel and archaeology, and gets up early in the morning (5am!) to write stories. The best response to his writing was when he reduced a friend to helpless, hysterical, rolling-on-the-floor-holding-his-stomach laughter. Unfortunately, the writing in question was a lonely hearts ad. He hopes to produce similar results in readers, without inadvertently acquiring another wife.
