And He is with you wherever you are.
Tawhid is the return of man to his origin, so that he will be as he was before he came into being.
'The Alchemy of Happiness'
By Al- Ghazzali (Author), Claud Field (Translator)
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.
Azafran Books was established with a clear aim in mind – to make available a selection of classic books for today’s contemporary readers. The books in our catalogue have been selected from a broad range of themes; such as philosophy (occidental & oriental), mysticism & magic, new thought, religion & spirituality, folktales, mythology, cult fiction, poetry, social commentary, and psychology. Yet they all have a common theme, or purpose – to stimulate our thinking and modes of perception. For this reason, they have been chosen to be re-published and re-presented to the modern reader. Azafran Books have been re-edited, formatted, and presented with new design work – they are NOT scanned copies with original errors. Our books have been carefully re-published to the highest of standards – by a team of dedicated real people – not an algorithm! Our aim at Azafran Books is to bring a range of stimulating books, many of them largely forgotten, to the attention of the reader today. In other words, to bring you ‘Classic Books for a Contemporary World.’
