Ain Al Hayat ( عَیْنُ الْحَیات: spring of life) is a Persian ethical book written by al-‘Allama al-Majlisi (d. 1110/1699). The book is a translation and exposition of the Prophet’s (s) ethical instructions for Abu Dhar al-Ghifari. The book lacks any organization or order. The author tries to provide an Islamic mystical account of the Prophet’s instructions for Abu Dhar. ‘Ain Al Hayat was summarized by the author and others, and it has been translated into Arabic and Urdu as well.
