Mishkat Al-Anwar (The Niche for Lights) is a commentary of Imam Al-Ghazali on the verse of light in the Quran (24:35). Here Ghazali talks about the relationship of Allah with his creation. He is in one sense far and transcendental, whereas in another sense he maintains close proximity with his creation.
This book is a translation by WHT Gairdiner and brings Ghazali nearer to the English knowing people too. The philosophical arguments of the book are made at the highest levels of thinking. Pondering over it exposes the reader to the unmatched level of thinking at which Ghazali was.
