Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hamid al-Din Abu'l-Hasan Ahmad b. 'Abdallah al-Kirmani (996-1021 CE) was a Persian Isma'ili scholar who served as a da'i, theologian and philosopher under the Fatimid caliph-imam al-Hakim bi Amr Allah. He was called upon to refute the dissident da'is, who by proclaiming al-Hakim's divinity had initiated the Druze movement. His prominent works are Rahat al-'aql (Peace of Mind, or Comfort of Reason), completed in 1020 and considered his magnum opus, Al-Aqwal al-dhahabiya, refuting al-Razi's argument against the necessity of revelation. Kitab al-riyad, a book that propounds the early Isma'ili cosmology.
