“Baitul Hikmah presents THE AL-GHAZALI FESTIVAL – a unique conference and workshop focusing on one of Islam’s Greatest Scholars Imam Al-Ghazali. About Shaykh Hamza Yusuf explains “that Islamic Education is understood as both Tarbiyya wa Talim – character building and teaching , moral and intellectual development which naturally lead to spiritual development.” If knowledge is just information learned and not a state of being, it is just so many words. What we want most for our children and ourselves is good character. The Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, said, “I was sent only to perfect good character.” But how is this achieved? Not by simply learning about the vices and virtues but through a systematic curriculum which not only clarifies deeper meanings but provides effective activities and practices which help make the virtues become second nature. Imam al-Ghazali’s Revival of Religious Sciences, now adapted for the young, meets this need. Regarded in the Muslim world, over the centuries, as the greatest compendium of Islamic spirituality and ethical behavior for everyday life, the Ihya Ulum UdDeen lays down practical teachings and explains how the outer aspects of Islam can, through their inner spiritually transformative meanings, change every situation into one that strengthens the innate human nobility of character. Speakers International Scholars Sr Gray Henry, Professor Mustafa Abu Sway, Sh Shariff Al Banna and Sh Hamza Maqbul will navigate his works and teachings and share their insights.
