Al-Akhlâq wa’l-Siyar (Morals and Behaviour)

By Ibn Hazm al-Andalusi. I have gathered together in this book numerous ideas which Allâh, the provider of intellect, has enabled me to profit from as day to day my daily circumstances altered, permitting me to understand the vicissitudes of fate and to control its fluctuations, to the extent that I have devoted the larger part of my life to it. I have chosen to master these problems by study and contemplation, rather than throw myself into the various sensual pleasures which attract most souls on this earth, and rather than amass unnecessary wealth. I have gathered together all my observations into this book in the hope that the Almighty may allow it to benefit whichever of His servants He wishes who has access to [is capable of understanding] my book. I hope that it will be well received, and I present it with good intentions and blessings [with a good heart].
