    After the existential crisis that caused him to completely re-examine his way of living and his approach to religion, Al-Ghazali put together The Alchemy of Happiness [46] to reassert his fundamental belief that a connection to God was an integral part of the joy of living. It was related concerning 'Ali may God ennoble his countenance that he ate dry bread from a shield while lying down - [in another version], while lying prostrate on his stomach, which the Bedouin Arabs sometimes did.

It covers almost all fields of Islamic sciences: fiqh Islamic jurisprudencekalam theology and sufism. These two chapters were the 22nd and 23rd chapters, respectively, in Ghazali's Revival of the Religious Sciences [47].

    They emphasize, "His mastery of philosophical logic and reasoning earned him the title of philosopher without losing his status as a religious scholar. Then he must raise up his hand before repletion. In this volume, concentrating on the manners relating to eating, Ghazali first discusses what a person must uphold when eating by himself: that the food is lawful, that both the person and the surroundings should be clean, that one must be content with what is available, and how the person should conduct himself while eating and after eating. There should be no spitting in the pot, the chief guest should be honoured, beginning should be made from the right hand side. From 'Ihya ul Uloom'. In this new edition, the Islamic Texts Society has included a translation of Imam Ghazali's own Introduction to the Revival of the Religious Sciences which gives the reasons that caused him to write the work, the structure of the whole of the Revival, and places each of the chapters in the context of the others.

    The Emissary of God may God bless him and grant him peace said: "No human being has ever filled a container worse than his own stomach. Then wash your hand with soap. Don't extend your hand to a morsel till you swallow the previous one. As for the sieve, its purpose is to render food more pleasant. A total of about 70 works can be attributed to Al-Ghazali.

The Prophet said : He who eats what lies on the dinning cloth will remain safe, will pass his life in solvency and his children will remain safe'. The third [rule of conduct] is to place the food on a sufra on the ground—for this is closest to what the Emissary of God may God bless him and grant him peace did—rather than to place it on a raised table.

Now the treasuries of God, in which this alchemy is to be sought, are the hearts of the prophets, and he who seeks it elsewhere will be disappointed and bankrupt on the day of judgement when he hears the word, 'We have lifted the veil from off thee, and thy sight to-day is keen.

By virtue of profound love and loyalty this man has arrived at the station of absolute surrender and contentment, which is the goal, and the utmost limit. It has been said that he who licks his dish and drinks its water will get the reward of the manumission of a slave.
