How do we know the world, ourselves, and our Creator? Who is a true scholar? What is direct ‘tasting’ of reality? Imam al-Ghazali answers these and other questions, presenting a comprehensive vision of the human being and the nobility of knowledge, study, and teaching. Sheikh Hamza Yusuf guides the listener through the first book of the Ihya in the historic Tekke of Karabas-i Veli in Bursa, Turkey.
