Abstract

Al Ghazali (1058-1111) is one of the greatest Muslim writers. Al Ghazali wrote nearly seventy seven books out of which this article the Urdu translation Mazaqul Arifeen of Ihya Ul Uloom Ud Deen (1096-1097)(The Revival of the Religious Sciences) which is regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality has been selected. The Revival of the Religious Sciences is divided into four parts, each containing ten chapters. Part one deals with knowledge and the requirements of faith-ritual purity, prayer, charity, fasting, pilgrimage, recitation of the Quran, and so forth; part two concentrates on people and society-the manners related to eating, marriage, earning a living, and friendship; parts three and four are dedicated to the inner life of the soul and discuss first the vices that people must overcome in themselves and then the virtues that they must strive to achieve. The topic of the article has been chosen from the second volume of this great work. In this article through the eating manners the social and ethical thinking of a society as discussed by Ghazali has been studied.
