Event Details



Good things are nice to have but where do we draw the line between enjoying the occasional pleasures, and being a shopping addict? In a time when we can get almost anything, including food, delivered to us, within the hour, have we been consumed by our desire to consume? Are we doing this to be… happy?


The most striking claim that Imam al-Ghazali makes in his book “The Alchemy of Happiness” is that the prophets are the happiest people, for they have achieved the ultimate goal of human existence. Imam Al-Ghazali writes that every person is born with a “knowing pain in the soul” resulting from a disconnection from the Ultimate Reality. The tragic condition of Man is that our eyes have been so distracted by physical things and pleasure, that we have lost the ability to see the unseen.


This is why people are so unhappy: they are trying to relieve this pain in the soul by recourse to physical pleasure. But physical pleasure cannot relieve a pain that is essentially spiritual. The only answer to our condition is a pleasure which comes not from the body but from self-knowledge.


How then can we begin to know ourselves and walk a path towards happiness?
