Imam Ghazali states in his work, The Beginnings of Guidance:

The Proper Manners of Keeping Allah’s Company

Know that the companion who never leaves you whether you are resident or travelling, whether asleep or awake, both in your life and after your death is your Lord, Master, Protector, and Creator.

And whenever you make remembrance of Him, He is your intimate partner–for Allah Most High says, “I am the intimate partner of one who makes remembrance of Me.”

And whenever your heart is broken in sadness over your shortcomings in fulfilling your religious responsibilities, then He is your companion and indeed close–for Allah Most High says, “I am with those broken-hearted for My sake.”

And Allah alone gives success.
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Is 'beginnings of guidance' a book?

Nur Sakinah Thomas on January 3, 2010 at 5:26 AM said...

Salam my dear sister,

The Beginning of Guidance (is a book),originally in Arabic (Bidayatul Hidayah) written by Imam Abu Hamed Al-Ghazali and its translated & edited by Professor Mashhad Al-Allaf.

Imam Al-Ghazali said: 'Here, then I give you counsel about the beginning of Guidance so that thereby you may test yourself and examine your Heart....' No one can reach the ending until he has completed the beginning,no one can discover the inward aspect until he has mastered the outward.'

MashaAllah... his sayings have deep insight.

I quote a few lines of the commentary of this book by kitaabun.com:
“This Book can be considered as an Introduction to The Imam's Magnum Opus The Revival of the Religions Sciences (Ihya Ulum al-Din)and directs the reader to the larger work for what lies beyond that.”
