author

The Proof of
Islam Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali
(d. 1111) jurist, legal theorist, logician, theologian, and mystic was a master
of both the outer and inner sciences of the Shariah who is regarded
by many as the greatest Muslim thinker to have lived after the Pious
Predecessors. Credited with dealing the deathblow to Aristotelian philosophy
in the Muslim world and bringing authentic Islamic spirituality into the
mainstream, his life and thought were extremely influential in shaping
the spiritual values and practices of medieval society and are no less relevant
today.
