strength est de constater, de nos jours, qu’une huge majorité d’hommes et de femmes semble avoir adopté, souvent sans même s’en rendre compte, un aspect de vue et un mode de vie les amenant à considérer los angeles vie quotidienne comme séparée de los angeles measurement spirituelle et religieuse. Dans un tel contexte, l’oeuvre de l’imam Ghazali revêt, plus que jamais, un caractère d’une extraordinaire actualité. Redonnant l. a. possibilité, pour ceux qui le désirent, de redécouvrir le sens véritable de los angeles faith, elle est une mise en œuvre cohérente du message fondamental d’unité et d’unicité de l’islam dans toutes ses dimensions constitutives de soumission à los angeles volonté divine (al-islâm), de foi (al-îmân) et de vertu contemplative (al-ihsân) . Celui qui voudra appro¬fondir le sens de sa propre vie religieuse et spirituelle, pourra y trouver l’expression d’une sagesse universelle et d’un équilibre imperative que le monde semble pourtant avoir oubliés, pa¬radoxalement. L’oeuvre de Ghazali refuse toute approche toute mentale ou sentimentale de l. a. faith qui serait coupée de l. a. size vraiment transcendante et spirituelle, et qui réduirait l. a. foi à une uncomplicated abstraction ou à un élan émotionnel risquant de dériver vers le fondamentalisme et le fanatisme. Mais elle évite aussi le piège d’un discours de los angeles raison qui chercherait à accaparer los angeles position de l’intelligence en prétendant à l. a. connais¬sance par le rejet et le déni de tout ce qui l. a. dépasse.
