Course Summary

True spirituality is living Prophetic guidance, with excellence. Imam Ghazali’s Beginning of Guidance outlines how a believer should practically live Prophetic guidance– day to day, from waking to sleep.  The text also outlines how to avoid sin and how to fulfill the rights of others with excellence—two other keys to living guidance.

Course Details

Imam Ghazali’s Beginning of Guidance is an inspiring text which outlines the fundamentals of seeking knowledge and implementing it in a Muslim’s everyday life.

A clear description of the Prophet’s day (peace & blessings be upon him) is given, in practical and clear detail. This allows the student to bring the sunna into their life—from waking to sleep; making best use of their time; avoiding sin; and fulfilling the rights of others.

Imam Ghazali argues that just as there is an end to this noble objective there is also a beginning to it, which must be made firm to achieve success. This is one of Imam Ghazali’s final works, it embodies a lifetime of learning, experience,and spirituality.

The three sections of this book are on obedience, refraining from disobedience, and the etiquette of companionship with the Creator and with creation.

Students will be asked to read ahead and take notes and participate in the discussion in class on how the words of Imam Ghazali can be implemented in our daily lives.
