This is the first complete annotated English translation of al-Ghazali's masterpiece Moderation in Belief. In the Moderation Al-Ghazali addresses theological and philosophical problems from within the Islamic tradition as well as problems of a general nature. Hence, a translation of this work would make a significant contribution to scholarship in Islamic studies and to philosophical and theological scholarship. There is a large body of literature on Al-Ghazali's philosophical theology with numerous references to the Arabic text of this work. However, the text is inaccessible to Western scholars who have limited or no knowledge of Classical Arabic. The translator must be versed in Classical Arabic and English as well as in Islamic philosophy. Since many of the problems discussed in the work are relevant to problems in Western philosophy, it takes a commentator who is also versed in Western philosophy to elucidate the relation of Al-Ghazali's work to Western philosophical thoughts.
