PostSubject: Six questions by IMAM EL GHAZALI   Wed 25 Jul - 23:42

Six questions

Once the great Imam Al-Ghazali posed 6 questions to his students as follows:

Q1 – “What is very close to us in this world?”


The students gave all kind of answers such as our parents, spouse, close friends, our children and etc.
Al-Ghazali replied: “Yes, those answers are quite correct but the perfect answer is ‘death’ because Allah s.w.t has promised us that those who lived will definitely die (Refer to Sura Ali Imran 185).”


Q2 – What is the furthest from us in this world?”


The students gave all kind of answers such as the country of China, the moon, the sun and etc. Al-Ghazali replied: “Yes, those answers are quite correct but the perfect answer is ‘our past’ because in whatever the circumstances, whoever we are and whatever vehicle we use we cannot go back into the past. So we have to always take care of today and the coming days with righteous deeds that is taught by Islam.”

Q3 – “What is the biggest in this world?”

The students gave all kind of answers such as the mountain, the earth, the sun and etc. Al-Ghazali replied: “Yes, those answers are quite correct but the perfect answer is ‘temptation (Nafs).’ So we must always be cautious with our temptation so as not to allow it to drive us to hell
(Jahannam) Refer Sura Al A’raf 179).”


Q4 - “What is the heaviest in this world?”

The students gave all kind of answers such as iron, steel, the elephant and etc. Al-Ghazali replied: “Yes, those answers are quite correct, but the perfect answer is ‘being trustworthy (Amanah)’ Al Ghazali explains:“ The plants, trees, animals and the mountain could not accept the task of being the caliph of this world but human, with arrogance and conceit accepted the task and so much so many human beings are being thrown into hell (Jahannam) by Allah SWt because they have breached the trust
others place on them. Refer Sura Al Ahzab 72)


Q5 - “What is the lightest in this world?”

The students gave all kind of answers such as cotton, dust, the wind and etc. Al-Ghazali replied: “Yes, those answers are quite correct but the perfect answer is ‘neglecting the salat 'daily prayer.' Al Ghazali explains this is especially true as people are known to simply neglect the salat because they are having a business meeting , having to work etc.

Q6 - “What is the sharpest in this world?”


The students gave all kind of answers such as the sword, knife and etc. Al-Ghazali replied: “Yes, those answers are quite correct but the perfect answer is ‘human tongue.’ Al Ghazali explains that with their tongues human arrogantly will offend and hurt the feeling of others.The life of the heart is knowledge; so preserve it, The death of the heart is ignorance; so avoid it. Your best provision is true devotion;
so provide it. This advice of mine is enough for you; so heed it.
