For the last 10 years Alqueria de Rosales has had the great honour of hosting this important event dedicated to the study of the works of Imam al-Ghazali.

He is currently the Shaykh Zayed Lecturer of Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge University and Director of Studies in Theology at Wolfson College.

Al-Ghazali Retreat 2018. The Secrets of the Prayer

The Ghazali Retreat 2017 centered on Book 37 of Imam al-Ghazali’s Revival of the Religious Sciences, entitled ‘The Book of Intention, Sincerity and Truthfulness’. The objective for the participants was to gain clearer knowledge of the reasons for the turbulences of the inner live and to gain practical awareness of how Islamic spirituality transforms human beings into more centred and conscious beings.

On the Ghazali Retreat of 2017, Dr. Samer Dajani presented a series of conferences intended to accompany the themes of Book 37 of Imam al-Ghazali’s Revival of the Religious Sciences. Here we offer together his conferences on The Remembrance of God, Gratitude and Truthfulness.

We are presenting together all Master Classes on Imam Al Ghazali by Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad from The Ghazali Week 2013, on Book 24 of the Revival of the Religious Sciences, the Ihya Ulum al-Din.
