Summary:

The spiritual life in Islam begins with riyadat al-nafs, the inner warfare against the ego. Distracted and polluted by worldliness, the lower self has a tendency to drag the human creature down into arrogance and vice. Only by a powerful effort of will can the sincere worshipper achieve the purity of soul which enables him to attain God's proximity. This translation of two chapters from The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din) details the sophisticated spiritual techniques adopted by classical Islam. In the first step, On Disciplining the Soul, which cites copious anecdotes from the Islamic scriptures and biographies of the saints, Ghazali explains how to acquire good character traits, and goes on to describe how the sickness of the heart may be cured. In the second part, Breaking the Two Desires, he focusses on the question of gluttony and sexual desire, concluding, in the words of the Prophet, that 'the best of all matters is the middle way'. The translator has added an introduction and notes which explore Ghazali's ability to make use of Greek as well as Islamic ethics. The work will prove of special interest to those interested in Sufi mysticism, comparative ethics, and the question of sexuality in Islam.

Summary:

Le livre que nous présentons est un traité sur " l'Amour de Dieu " de Ghazâlî (1058-1111). Ce traité fait partie du 4e quart de la somme Théologique et Spirituelle de " Ihyâ' 'ulûm-ad-dîn " (Revification des Science de la foi). Dans ce dernier quart Ghazâlî traite des " Munjiyât " (vertus ou qualités conduisant au salut) et le Traité plus particulier sur " L'Amour de Dieu " se veut être une sorte de guide " de la vie ascétique et mystique " d'où l'on pourrait extraire " une introduction à la vie dévote ". Nous avons là, en fait, un véritable monument littéraire philosophico-théologique à la gloire de l'amour. Si 'Abdallah Ançârî (1006-1089), surnommé " Shaykh-I-Islâm ", considère la " Mahabba " (Amour) comme une étape déficiente dans la hiérarchie des " Degrés ", dont le. sommet est le Tawhîd (l'unicité), Ghazâlî, lui, en revanche, considère la " Mahabba " comme le sommet de l'itinéraire spirituel. Par là il rejoint cette intuition d'un autre penseur spirituel dont on a dit que sa philosophie était " La métaphysique de l'intériorité " : " Aime Dieu, il est ton amour ; l'amour dont tu aimes, l'amour qui aime en toi et l'amour que tu aimes ". Ou cette autre parole : " Tu nous a planté, Toi, au cœur, une flèche, la charité "

Summary:

"Je sus que ma parole atteindrait les deux horizons, celui d'Occident et celui d'Orient", déclare Ibn Arabî (1165-1240) à la suite d'une vision survenue dans sa jeunesse. L'histoire lui a donné raison. Depuis plus de sept siècles, son œuvre n'a cessé d'être lue, méditée, commentée dans toutes les langues vernaculaires de l'islam ; il a exercé une influence majeure sur le "soufisme", la dimension mystique de l'islam. La vindicte persistante des oulémas (docteur de la Loi de l'islam) à son égard atteste la force de sa présence parmi les "Hommes de la Voie". Il est grand Docteur mystique de l'islam. Pas de question intellectuelle et religieuse qu'il n'ait abordée dans son œuvre immense (plus de quatre cents ouvrages !). Claude Addas retrace ici la vie et l'œuvre de ce grand "voyageur", exceptionnel "vivificateur de la religion", comme on le désigne dans la tradition musulmane. Claude Addas Diplômée des Langues orientales, auteur d'une thèse sur Ibn Arabî, elle poursuit ses recherches sur ce grand soufi andalou.

Summary:

« C’est à la mosquée que l’idée d’un féminisme islamique me traverse l’esprit. Écoutant le khutba du grand mufti, je me dis : Se pourrait-il qu’une femme conduise la grande prière du vendredi et qu’au lieu d’un homme, ce soit une personne du sexe opposé qui parle en ce moment ? Que se passerait-il ? » Et pourquoi pas ? Sherin Khankan ne connaît pas la peur. Elle raisonne. Elle croit. Dans la première mosquée pour femmes en Europe, à Copenhague, elle se bat chaque jour pour une relecture tolérante du Coran. Ne portant le voile qu’à la mosquée, elle anime une « Islamic Academy » à l’intention des femmes, où sont enseignées la philosophie islamique et la prière. Elle y célèbre aussi ses premiers mariages interreligieux. Dans ce livre confession, Sherin Khankan parle pour la première fois de son enfance, de sa pratique religieuse, du soufi sme. La mère de quatre enfants évoque sa famille avec tendresse, la militante son combat pour un féminisme islamique.

Summary:

Abû Hâmid al-Ghazâlî (1058-1111) est de loin l'auteur le plus connu et le plus controversé de la période médiévale musulmane. Cet homme d'une incontestable et remarquable intelligence nous a légué des centaines d'écrits (seuls quelques dizaines nous sont parvenues) qui ne cessent de faire parler de lui aujourd'hui encore. Le chemin vers le paradis (Minhâj) qu'il préconise est semé d'obstacles en tous genres. L'auteur a d'ailleurs constaté que : " c'était une voie ardue et un chemin difficile, aux nombreuses montées abruptes, extrêmement pénible, aux vastes étendues, aux terribles fléaux, parsemées de nombreux obstacles et handicaps, ornées de périls et de précipices, pleine d'ennemis et de brigands, peu fréquentée. C'est ainsi qu'elle doit être parce qu'elle est la voie du Paradis. " Al-Ghazâlî, fidèle à son habitude, va s'engager dans l'énumération exhaustive des situations qui vont se présenter au dévot soucieux de se rapprocher de Dieu. Mais il avertit déjà : rares sont ceux qui sont parvenus à franchir sans encombre les sept obstacles qui se dressent sur cette voie. C'est alors que l'adoration vouée à Dieu va prendre ici tout son sens.

Summary:

Against the backdrop of the revolutionary uprisings of 2011–2013, Samuli Schielke asks how ordinary Egyptians confront the great promises and grand schemes of religious commitment, middle class respectability, romantic love, and political ideologies in their daily lives, and how they make sense of the existential anxieties and stalled expectations that inevitably accompany such hopes. Drawing on many years of study in Egypt and the life stories of rural, lower-middle-class men before and after the revolution, Schielke views recent events in ways that are both historically deep and personal. Schielke challenges prevailing views of Muslim piety, showing that religious lives are part of a much more complex lived experience.

Summary:

Plus important que la somme des savoirs que peut acquérir un homme, sont les vertus par lesquelles il donne un sens à ces savoirs. A une époque où l'éducation est souvent réduite à un apprentissage purement quantitatif, la voix de Ghazali apparaît aussi singulière que son message semble indispensable. L'enjeu de cet ouvrage, central à l'enseignement soufi, est immense : il s'agit de la connaissance de soi. L'auteur pénètre avec nous l'âme humaine puis nous fait revenir sur le thème essentiel des vertus pour que nous en cernions les subtilités et que nous aspirions à parfaire notre façon d'être. Puis il aborde le sujet de l'éducation des enfants, ce prolongement de nous-mêmes. Qui plus grand que l'imam al-Ghazâlî, pourrait nous accompagner dans un tel parcours ? Il est cet immense érudit qui ne cessa d'être une référence pour les savants musulmans depuis neuf siècles ; et ce gnostique éclairé, qui a si bien sondé les raisons et les coeurs, que les soufis jusqu'à nos jours se réclament tous de lui. Ce livre n'est rien de moins qu'une porte ouvrant sur un long combat contre soi.

Summary:

Considering its prominent role in many faith traditions, surprisingly little has been written about hospitality within the context of religion, particularly Islam. In her new book, Mona Siddiqui, a well-known media commentator, makes the first major contribution to the understanding of hospitality both within Islam and beyond. She explores and compares teachings within the various Muslim traditions over the centuries, while also drawing on materials as diverse as Islamic belles lettres, Christian reflections on almsgiving and charity, and Islamic and Western feminist writings on gender issues. Applying a more theological approach to the idea of mercy as a fundamental basis for human relationships, this book will appeal to a wide audience, particularly readers interested in Islam, ethics, and religious studies.

Summary:

Marking a close, genre-specific reading of the multiple "languages" within al-Ghaz l 's writings, this book seeks to excavate his most intimate thoughts on life and death. In doing so, it takes the reader into the very heart of the master's epistemology, psychology, and eschatology.
