Bury your existence in the earth of obscurity, 
for whatever sprouts forth,
without having first been buried,
flowers imperfectly.
(Ibn ʿAta llah Al-Iskandari)

'Al-Ghazali on the Remembrance of Death and the Afterlife' by
By Abu Hamid Muhammad Ghazali (Author), T. J. Winter (Introduction, Translator)

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.
