By Al- Gjazali, translated by Madelain Farah, Islamic Book Trust, paperback, 212 pages
Islam considers marriage as the most intimate communion between man and woman. The mystery of sex finds it fulfillment when intimate spiritual harmony is combined with the physical link. Marriage and family laws are, therefore, an important part of Islamic law for the fulfillment of its ultimate objective of building a harmonious and peaceful human society. In his inimitable style, Imam Ghazali discussesthis subject in this small book, and shows how Islam, despite differences in rules and marriage, sets out inviolable principles so that marriage is not distorted by godless understandings.
About the author:
Abu Hamid al-Ghazali is a towering figure in Islam. His enormous influence can be summarized, in the words of Annemarie Shimmel, as the one who “teaches… only to help man to live a life in accordance with the sacred law, not by clinging exclusively to its letter, but by an understanding of its deeper meaning …so that he is ready for the meeting with his Lord at any moment.” His greatest work Ihya Ulum al-Din (Revivification of the Sciences of Religion), comprising forty books divided into four quarters of ten books each, has helped generations towards this end until today.
