The Alchemy of Happiness


As a pracical mystic, Ghazali's aim was to make man better by leading him from a merely rational acquiescience in the stereotype creed of Islam to a real knowledge of God. The first four chapters of his Kimiya-i-Sa-adaat are a commentary on the famous verse in the Hadith: He who knows himself knows God.

This little volume contains eight sections of the Kimiya-i-Sa-adaat.

Description from the publisher: God has sent on earth prophets to teach men the prescription of happiness. This alchemy may be briefly described as turning away from the world to God, and its constituents are the knowledge of self., the knowledge of God, the knowledge of this world as it really is, and the knowledge of the next world as it really is.
