Ayat an-Nur

Last night I had a dream that I was studying the Qur'an. It seemed that I was focusing on Ayat an-Nur in particular.

Today (after some disappointing situations with students) I recalled this and decided to search for al-Ghazzali's Mishkat al-Anwar in the library. I found the Gairdner translation from 1924 in a 1952 reprint published in Lahore. It's quite charming.
