Allah the Sublime and Majestic proclaims:


O children of Adam, how can you deny My Power? I alone have created you, fashioning for you a beautiful and harmonious form. Yet you begin to move about arrogantly, causing the earth to tremble beneath your steps. You begin to amass wealth without sharing it, until your soul reaches your throat at the moment of death and you cry to Me: "Now I wish to give in charity." How can you imagine this last moment to be the proper time to establish your intention?

(This khabar is part of the oral tradition by the sage Asad ibn Musa. It is also recorded in the Mishat al-Anwar of Ibn Arabi)

Description:

This is the first English translation of the last chapter of Al-Ghazali's Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din)
, widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality. After expounding his Sufi philosophy of death and showing the importance of the contemplation of human mortality to the mystical way of self-purification, Ghazali takes his readers through the stages of the future life: the vision of the Angels of the Grave, the Resurrection, the Intercession of the Prophet, and finally, the torments of Hell, the delights of Paradise and—for the elect—the beatific vision of God's Countenance.
