Well, if you know someone in Afghanistan, they can easily find it there and send it to you by post.

The book has been published several times in Iran, but it is not available in online Persian bookstores, bcz it's a huge book.

I may go to Afghnistan this summer, although it's not for sure. If you couldn't get it till then, let me know, I will happily get you one and then send it to you from France through the post. :)

Yeah, do not hesitate to let me know. There will be no problem for me. Coming back from Afghanistan, I may not have so many things to bring so that I be overloaded. And btw, if we both were in Kabul at the same time, we can also meet. :)

Just to remind you, if you asked a friend in Afghanistan to buy you one, make sure he buys the complete original version (which may be between 4 to 10 volumes depending on the edition). There has been compact version of it in two volumes, an Iranian guy has edited it. I didn't find it very accurate.

Yes, he is one of the greatest Imams of Ahl ul-Sunnah and one of the greatest Awliya'ullah. His teachings have significantly influenced the Hanafi scholars around the world, especially those in Afghanistan.

I read a few of his letters, and he really deserves to be called a Mujaddid.

I have Kashf al-Asrar; it is in two volumes.

Many classical Sunni texts are published in Iran. Are these reliable publications? I was at a relative's home this past Monday, and he showed me his copy of the Ihya'. He was unaware that the Ihya' is in several volumes, and after I pointed it out to him, we noticed his was an abridged publication. It was published in Iran.

It depends on the honesty of the editor. Despite the fact that they may make some prejudicial and incorrect comments in the Preface, most of the editors respect the honesty in their academical works.

For example, Kimyaya Sa'aadat has been published by two different editors. The first one was edited by Ustad Araam, who is a very famous researcher and scholar in Iran, but he had modified a few things. For example in the Contents, he changed the original title of "dar aqaayed-e ahle sunnat" to "dar durust kardan-e aqaayed-e ahl-e sunnat". While the second editor, Hussain Khadev-jam, edited the book with all honesty, dedication, ikhlaas and a very good niyyat. He dedicated all his life in editing the works of Imam Ghazali.

Yeah, the full version of Ihya'e Ulumuddin is in four volumes. Its Farsi/Dari translation was done some centuries ago by someone called Mo'ayyeduddin Mohammad Khwarazmi. The edition of this book has also been done by Hussain Khadev-Jam. I have also seen that compact version of it in two volumes, but the editor is someone else, and there is NO guarantee for the accuracy of that version.

^All the entire Persian literature and poetry depends on Islam. If you take out all the islamic books from the Persian literuatre and poetry, what will be left? Your entire heritage will be lost!! You don't have any books left from the Sassanid era in Pahlavi (Middle Persian) language. What will you do then?

That single illiterate man had so much influence that all your Persian heritage today is based on his teachings.

thats because the arab muslims burned and destroyed all our books from the pre-islamic era.

According to an account in Tarikh al-Tabari by Al-Tabari, the Arab Commander Saad ibn Abi Waqqas wrote to Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab about what should be done with the books at Ctesiphon. Umar wrote back: "If the books contradict the Qur'an, they are blasphemous. On the other hand, if they are in agreement, they are not needed, as for us Koran is sufficient." Thus, the huge library was destroyed and the books, the product of the generations of Persian scientists and scholars were thrown into fire or the Euphrates.

so dont tell me that we didnt have pre-islamic literature


now, lets not derail the thread

That was probably the only such incident of that time. In Khorasan and Mawara'ul Nahr, none of the libraries were destroyed. Zoroastrian books as well as the translations of Greek philosophy oeuvres were available side by side to the Islamic sources.

The reason that all those Sassanid-era or Pahlavi works are not available today is that when modern Persian developed, people could not understand the books written in Pahlavi, and most of the Pahlavi books got disappeared. Take the example of Zaraatusht-Naamah. The original Pahlavi book is no longer available today, while the Farsi-version of that book is. No one burnt this book! These are the words of the author himself:


در آغاز کتاب زراتشت نامه گوید: کتابی به خط پهلوی نزد موبدان موبد دیدم که سر گذشت جهان و روزگار پیشینیان و تفسیر اوستا و داستان زادن زرتشت از مادر در آن نگاشته بود و کسی را به خواندن آن نامه کهن دسترس نبود ، موبد به من گفت چون اکنون کسی این خط نتواند خواند سزاوار است آن را به نطم پارسی در آوری تا همه کس از آن بهره مند گردند و از دین پاک برخوردار شود . من از گفتار موبد خوشدل شدم و از دستور او سرنپیچیدم و خواستم که نام نیکی از خود به یادگار گزارم. بدین قصد به سرای خود باز گشتم و با دل و روان شاد به خواب رفتم ، سروشم در خواب گفت چون بیدار شوی داستان زرتشت به نظم دری تازه کن و روان پیامبر را از خود شاد ساز. هراسان بیدار شدم دیگر چشم به خواب نرفت و بامداد پس بر آمدن آفتاب به نزد موبدی که زند و اوستا بر کنار داشت رفتم و گفتم که آن قصه را آغاز کند . به گفتار موبد گوش دادم و پس از دریافتن موضوع به نظم داستان پرداختم

So the disappearance of Pahlavi books has more to do with natural course of evolution in societies and languages, than with their destruction by Muslim conquerors.

Edit: Avesta is another example of Zoroastrian books which have survived till today. Given the fact that Muslims conquered almost all the Zoroastrian-dominated regions in a short-while, should they have destroyed the Avesta (the principal source of the Zoroastrian religion), it wouldn't have been available today.

Niche of Lights is actually a complicated book. Those who do not have sufficient knowledge of Islamic creed and Kalaam, might understand the opposite of what Ghazali explains. That's why there were very serious critiques of this book when Imam Ghazali released it. But later on, he answered their questions.

I suggest you start with Kimyaaye Sa'aadat but it's in a classic Persian, don't sure if you can understand it. The Persian translation of his Deliverance from Error is in modern Farsi, I think you won't have any problem in that.
