Justice and Remembrance: Introducing the Spirituality of Imam Ali


ISBN: 1845115265

Author: Shah-Kazemi, Reza

Publisher: I. B. Tauris & Company (August 2007)

Pages: 254 Binding: Paperback

Description from the publisher:

Ali b. Abi Talib, son-in-law and cousin of the Prophet Muhammad, first Shi"i imam , is a monumental figure within the Islamic tradition. But despite the immense importance of Imam Ali, there is a dearth of literature in Western languages about his life and thought. This book -- the first serious engagement in English with the intellectual principles underpinning his teachings -- is therefore a welcome and valuable addition to the sources available. It consists of three parts. Part one introduces the person of Ali in a general manner, and focuses particularly on the spiritual and ethical content of his teachings. Part two evaluates Ali"s "sacred conception of justice" Part three addresses the theme of spiritual realization through the remembrance of God, the central mystical practice of the Sufis. Justice and Remembrance will be of great value to students and scholars of Islamic thought, as well as to those interested in the relationship between spirituality and ethics.
