About The Book
Al-Ghazzali, the best known exponent of traditional psychology, is considered by many to be the greatest Muslim thinker after the great Companions.
His life and thought played a major role in determining the ethical and spiritual values of medieval society and continues to be influential throughout the world today. His method was to motivate believers to action to undertake the greater struggle and morally heal.
Following an Introduction to al-Ghazzali's psychology of the greater struggle, the author gives a commentary upon Part One of al-Ghazzali's Introduction to his famous Alchemy of Happiness called Knowing One's Self.
The Alchemy of Happiness is al-Ghazzali's summary of his Ihya Ulum al-Din or Revival of the Religious Sciences. This work provides a unique explanation of Islamic psychology.
