This book presented in English gard, is Book III of the first quarter, namely, the Kitab Asrsr al-Taharah (On the Mysteries of Purity). Though not one of the more profound contributions of al-Ghazali, it still remains an integral part of the Ihya and should not, therefore, be neglected.

Regarding purity, it is mentioned in the Qur’an “Therein are man who aspire to purity, and God loveth the purifies.” (Surah 9:108);

And the prophet said; “Purification is the key to prayer.”
