“Never have I dealt with anything more difficult than my own soul which sometimes helps and sometimes opposes me.” – Imam al-Ghazali

Imam al-Ghazali condensed his magnum opus, the Ihya Ulum al-Din (The Revival of the Religious Sciences) toward the end of his life into a simple step-by-step, tried-and-proven guide for spiritual development. Shaykh Saad al Attas spent many years in in-depth study of the Ihya in Damascus.

Join him for a discussion of the comprehensive distillation of the 40 books that comprise the Ihya into 40 simple principles. The result is an essential guide on how to improve one’s relationship with both God and humanity and also serves as a perfect introduction to Imam al-Ghazali’s other great works.
