This volume is a comprehensive translation of Ihya-Ulum-Id-Din based on worship, the great authentic work of Imam Al-Ghazzali.
Edwin Elliot Calverley, being an eminent scholar has described all the ways of worship lying in Al-Ghazzali's Ihya. He endeavored to present a clear expression by giving description of all parts of worship in different headings. All Arabic terms are presented in English according to their original pronunciation as far as possible.
For Clearance of prayer-position the translator has given an analytical table in his introduction. All the difficult and mysterious items have been described in footnotes. In the appendix, a table of the number of Rak'ahs has been given to make easy and comprehensive the way of worship.
