"The Ihya is primarily about human reality. It doesn’t engage too much in complex metaphysics, but it tells us how to dispose ourselves correctly towards reality. It’s about the cultivation of presence."

In this ongoing series of lectures Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad takes us through Imam al-Ghazali's Ihya Ulum al-Din, the Revival of the Religious Sciences, elucidating its meanings through its original text, focusing on one book each year:

The Secrets of the Prayer (2018)
The Condemnation of Anger, Hatred and Envy (2019)
Intention, Sincerity and Truthfulness (2020)
The Faults of the Tongue (2021)
Condemnation of Status and Ostentation (2022)
The Properties of Friendship and Brotherhood (2023)

Ordinarily delivered in Alqueria de Rosales in Spain, these lectures are a helpful guide for those seeking spiritual refinement in particular aspects of their worship and conduct.
