Recommends it for: everyone
ghazali goes into details about the five pillars in islam and much much more. the book is very enlightening, esp the chapter on hajj. it compares every aspect of the hajj we perform in this world to our inevitable meeting with the Lord in the next. makes you think about things differently!
Ayaz Khalid

I was read this book in Indonesia vers. When the first time i know about sufism...after that..i love to read Al Ghazali books.

If u want to be 'salikin' u should read this and find the spiritual teacher ,who will be show u the way to know more inside ur self
Highly recommend to anyone who wants to understand the inner meaning of the five pillars of Islam. A must read for every muslim, its very short but to the point and it will leave an instinct impact on you.

Recommends it for: someone who wants a deeper look at Islamic worship (quick read)
This is a quick read that gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation for the five pillars. I revisit this book a lot when I need a spiritual boost! I highly recommend it! :)
great stuff. didn't read zakat and hajj yet though. similar to his bidaya hidaya but more attention on the spirituality...less manual, but more evaluative.
A comprehensive and perfect guide for a practicing Muslim.
