Jewels of the Quran

Al-Ghazali's Theory: A translation, with an introduction and annotation of al-Ghazali's Kitab Jawahir al-Qur'an: A Translation of Imam al-Ghazali's 'Kitab Jawahir al-Qur'an

This work, a translation of Imam al-Ghazali's 'Kitab Jawahir al-Qur'an', contains his views on several broad problems relating to the study of the Qur'an, in which various parts of the Qur'an are compared to various types of valuables, such as jewels, pearls, rubies, red brimstones, corundums, etc. The book also carries translation of over 1500 verses which al-Ghazali calls the jewels and the pearls of the Qur'an. This classification is unprecedented in the history of Qur'anic studies, presented here in free-flowing modern English which makes the work scholarly and enjoyable.

About The Authors

Abu Hamid ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Tusi al-Shafi’i al-Ghazali

Abu Hamid ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Tusi al-Shafi’i al-Ghazali (or al-Ghazzali) was born in 450/1058, in Tus (located in present-day Iran). He studied under the great theologian and jurist Imam al-Haramayn al-Juwayni (478/1085) and produced a number of texts on Islamic law and theology. At the age of 34 he accepted a position as rector and professor of the Nizamiyya College in Baghdad. He remained busy teaching, refuting heresies, and responding to questions from all segments of the community. During this period he produced the celebrated works The Objectives of the Philosophers (Maqasid al-Falasifa), followed by The Incoherence of the Philosophers (Tahafut al-Falasifa), in which he strongly challenged Peripatetic philosophy. Thereafter, facing a personal spiritual crisis, Imam Ghazali abruptly left his position and spent the next ten years in or between the cities of Damascus, Makka, Madina, and Jerusalem. During this period, he wrote the seminal Revivification of the Religious Sciences (Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din), a grand work of forty books outlining the significance and wisdom underlying the practices of Islam. At this point, Imam Ghazali returned to teaching in Nishapur and finally in his birth place of Tus, leaving a legacy of works that synthesized jurisprudence, philosophy, theology, and sufism. Imam Ghazali died in 505/1111 in Tus and in short time was recognized as the reviver (mujaddid) of the century, celebrated ever since among Muslims as the Proof of Islam (Hujjat al-Islam).
