“Remembrance and Prayer the Way of Prophet Muhammad” was one of the first works of Sheikh al Ghazaly to be translated into English. The book describes in vivid prose how the Prophet used to remember Allah and pray to Him. Not only are the exquisitely beautiful, deeply moving, and penetrating words of the Prophet given in the English translation, but in the original Arabic as well, thus allowing those desirous of memorizing the Arabic access to the original texts. The intimate relationship with Allah, which was the hallmark of the Prophet's life, becomes clear and vivid.
The hook's contents are immensely relevant to the life and concerns of modem man, whose life has been made barren by the present secularist machinery. This book could be described as a short excursion into one of the many pathways in the awesomely vast territory that is the life of the Prophet of Islam, the way of dhikr and dua.
