    Ghazali, Abu Hamid al-

    (d. 1111 )

    Influential Ashari theologian, jurist, and mystic. Born in Khurasan, he studied theology and law. While teaching law at Nizamiyya College in Baghdad, he suffered a spiritual crisis, withdrew from public life, and spent eleven years in travel and Sufi studies. Best-known work is Ihya ulum al-din (Revival of the religious sciences), an attempt to integrate theology and law, ethics and mysticism. Other important works include Al-munqidh min al-dalal (Delivery from error), a spiritual guidebook, and Tahafut al-falasafah (Destruction of the philosophers), an effort to debunk philosophy. His vast learning, systematic thought, and lucid style continue to ensure a wide audience.
