Abu Hurayrah (may God be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may God’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:
“If a Muslim or – a believer – performs ablution, when he washes his face, every sin he has committed with his eyes is washed away with the water, or with the last drop of water; when he washes his hands, every sin he committed is washed away from his hands with the water, or with the last drop of water; and when he washes his feet, every sin that his feet walked towards is washed away with the water, or with the last drop of water, until he comes out cleansed of all sins.”
Now joining Book Sets One and Two from al-Ghazali’s Revival of the Religious Sciences, the Book of Knowledge and the Book of Belief, is Book Set Three, The Mysteries of Purification. Accompanying the translation for parents and teachers, the volume for children contains 17 stories, introduced by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, as well as a complete workbook and a curriculum with marvelous supportive activities for schools and home schools. Both parents and children will be inspired by being able to understand the deeper meanings and beauty of the rituals of purification, from the teachings and insights of Imam al-Ghazali.
