Imam al-Ghazali

On Knowing This World (Great Books of The Islamic World)




This is the third and fourth topic of the Introduction of Al-Ghazali to his masterful work Alchemy of Happiness. In addition to knowing yourself and God, you need to have some idea about this world and the Hereafter. According to Al-Ghazali, without an understanding of the passing nature of this world and the permanence of the Hereafter, you may operate out of a different set of values than the ones with which the Creator blessed you.
