Product Description :


This is the long awaited first complete English translation of the classic The Alchemy of Happiness, Imam al-Ghazali's, may Allah be pleased with him, Persian summary of his famous Arabic treatise on morality and ethics in Islam, The Revival of Religious Sciences


In this work, Imam al-Ghazali details the many pitfalls, snares, and distractions internal and external that lie in wait to divert the Taveller of the Way from attaining the goal which al-Ghazali calls spiritual happiness. But there are also defenders, guides, and helpers which the traveler may enlist in his aid if he recognizes them.


In The Alchemy of Happiness, [Kimiya al-Sa'adat] Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him, has provided the traveler of the Way with a critique of faith and a detailed guidebook to guide him safely to that goal.


If he follows its counsels, he will successfully pass through the awesome tribunal of the Resurrection to achieve everlasting salvation, the highest degree of which is that state in which there remains neither fear of the terrors of hell nor appetite for the pleasures of Paradise. It is the pure ecstasy of the loving Divine Presence: Absolute spiritual happiness!







About the author :

The 'Proof of Islam' Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali (d. 1111) may Allah sanctify his secret, jurist, legal theorist, logician, theologian, and mystic was a master of both the outer and inner sciences of the Shariah who is regarded by many as the greatest Muslim thinker to have lived after the Pious Predecessors. Credited with dealing the deathblow to Aristotelian philosophy in the Muslim world and bringing authentic Islamic spirituality into the mainstream, his life and thought were extremely influential in shaping the spiritual values and practices of medieval society and are no less relevant today.
