How do we develop a spiritual life? How do we change ourselves so that we can live by the universal spiritual values of Islam? 7 Steps to Spiritual Intelligence tells us how to come closer to God in seven steps: through the genuine seeking of God, discipleship of a spiritual director, learning and understanding spiritual intelligence, simplicity and contentment, striving to practise, remembering God and praying to Him, and self-inspection and self-control. Based on the teachings of Imam Ghazali and other classical scholars and upon years of practical experience in teaching young Muslims, Dr Musharraf Hussain has given us a contemporary and highly accessible way to understand and apply Islamic teachings to spirituality.
In 2009 he was awarded the OBE for his services to community relations in Britain.

He undertook his Islamic education in the UK, Pakistan and the Al-Azhar University in Egypt. Dr Musharraf has also helped to establish a number of Muslim schools in the UK.
