Al-Ghazali on Invocations and Supplications
Book IX of the Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya ulum ad din)

Al-Ghazali on Invocations and Supplications is a translation of the ninth chapter of the Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din). This chapter falls in the sections dealing with the requirement of religion. The present volume is probably the most widely read compendium of such material, popular not only for its comprehensiveness and beauty, but also for the analytical approach of its author, who explores the psychological and spiritual effects of prayer and the celebration of God’s name.

This new third edition includes the invocations and supplications in Arabic for those readers who would like to use them in their prayers.
