​Allah, may He be exalted and glorified, reveals:

If my servants lose their state of ritual purity and do not perform ablutions, they are unjust toward Me. If they perform the rite of ablution without offering two cycles of prostration, they are unjust toward Me. If they offer prostrations without concluding by supplicating Me, they are unjust towards Me. If they have made clear supplication and have waited without receiving any response from Me, then I would be unjust toward them. But I am never an unjust Lord.

(Khabar transmitted through the noble companion Ibn al-Jarrah and recorded in Ibn Arabi's Mishkat al-Anwar)

Description:

A revised edition of Kojiro Nakamura's acclaimed translation into English of Book IX of The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din). Although prayerfulness and the remembrance of God suffuse all the formal practices of Islam, there are times when the Muslim simply 'sits alone with his Lord' to repeat formulas drawn from the Qur'an and the sayings of the Prophet, seeking remission of his sins and the purification of his heart. The present volume is probably the most widely read compendium of such material, popular not only for its comprehensiveness and beauty, but also for the analytical approach of its author, who explores the psychological and spiritual effects of prayer and the celebration of God's name. The original translation by Kojiro Nakamura, now Head of the Islamic Studies Department at the University of Tokyo, has been substantially revised and augmented with hadith identification. 
This volume won a British Book Design and Production Award in 1991.
