His names, being interpreted, signify the Sun of the Faith, the Praiseworthy, and One who can recite the Koran- he is further known to his compatriots under the titles of the Tongue of the Hidden and the Interpreter of Secrets. The better part of his life was spent in Shiraz, and he died in that city towards the close of the century. The exact date either of his birth or of his death is unknown.

He fell upon turbulent times. His delicate love-songs were chanted to the rude accompaniment of the clash of arms, and his dreams must have been interrupted often enough by the nip of famine in a beleaguered town, the inrush of conquerors, and the flight of the defeated.The Alchemy of Happinessby Al-Ghazzali, tr.

by Claud Field [1909].The Kimiya-yi Saadat (Alchemy of Happiness) was written towards the end of Abu ?amid Mu?ammad ibn Mu?ammad al-Ghazalis life shortly before 499/1105. During the time before it was written the Muslim world was considered to be in a state of political as well as intellectual unrest. al-Ghazali noted that there were constant disputes regarding the role of philosophy and scholastic theology and Sufis became chastised for their neglect of the ritual obligations of Islam.

Upon its release, the Kimiya-yi saadat allowed al-Ghazali to considerably reduce the tensions between the scholars and mystics.
