The Mysteries of Purification (Kitab asrar al-tahara) is Book 3 of the Revival of the Religious Sciences series (Ihya ulum al-din) by Imam Al-Ghazali.

Imam Al-Ghazali explains the fundamentals of the purification that is necessary in order to perform the five daily prayers. The book begins with an introduction to the general topic of purity. Al-Ghazaali explains the ḥadith “Purification is half of faith,” and reminds readers that, for the earliest Muslims, inner purification was much more important than outer purification.

About the author:

Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali (d. 1111) was a leading scholar, jurist, and theologian of the golden age of Islam, and he remains its truest advocate in modern times. As a teacher of both inward and outward faith, he recorded these practical teachings in his forty-book compendium of Islamic knowledge.

Imam Al-Ghazali was fondly referred to as the "Hujjat-ul-lslam", a Proof of Islam, is honoured as a scholar all over the world and is generally acclaimed as the most influential thinker of the Classical period of Islam.
