The Alchemy of Happiness
The Alchemy of Happiness was written by Al-Ghazzali – a Persian theologian and philosopher. The influence of Al-Ghazzali upon both the Christian and Islamic thinkers of the Middle Ages and beyond is being more and more widely documented. Known as The Proof of Islam, Ghazzali finally won acceptance for Sufism in Islam, and his methods of argument and analysis powerfully impressed the scholars of the West, who imitated him extensively. Above all, Ghazzali was a Sufi, The Alchemy of Happiness is his own abridgement, designed for the ordinary reader, of his colossal master-work, The Revival of Religious Sciences.
