In recent years, there has been a keen interest in personal growth and transformation. Many are searching for paradigms and models which will help them become better versions of themselves — as human beings and as believers. Get ready for true change using Imam al-Ghazali’s very own methodology.

Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058–1111 CE) was undoubtedly one of the most important scholars and spiritual masters of Islam. This unique course explores his life, inner struggle and paradigm for personal transformation. Primarily based on two key works of Al-Ghazali, his spiritual autobiography Munqidh min al-Dalal (Deliverance from Error) and Kimiya al-Sa’adah (Alchemy of Happiness), the course will explore Imam al-Ghazali’s own path to self-discovery and personal transformation.

At one point in his life Al-Ghazali experienced a crisis of faith and identity. He then embarked on a 10 year journey of self-discovery. The course will highlight the seven steps which Al-Ghazali embarked on during this journey. Join us on Saturday 23rd February to discuss the practical application of these transformative steps:

1. Skepticism and doubt
2. Ambition
3. Self Discovery
4. Hijra (migration)
5. Spiritual khalwa (seclusion)
6. Self-introspection, and
7. Sincerity

Once described by Al-Juwayni as “an ocean of learning”, discover Al-Ghazali’s own character through the steps he prescribes and explore your own inner depths along the way.
