Imam al-Ghazali

Al-Ghazali Jewels of The Quran Edited By Laleh Bakhtiar (Great Books of The Islamic World)




This is a translation of Imam Ghazali’s Jawahir al-Quran. In the first part, Imam Ghazali describes the way to understand the Quran, its principal aims and how all branches of Islamic knowledge are based on it. The second part contains more than 1500 verses from the Quran which Imam Ghazali divides into rubies and pearls. The verses he describes as rubies relate to our cognitive function and refer to the essence of God, his Names and Qualities and Acts. The verses he describes as pearls refer us to the straight path and the Divine urging us to follow it. The pearls engage our practical function.
