About the Author:
Imam al-Ghazali was born in 450 AH (1059 CE) in Tous. Shaykh Ahmed al-Razakani, a famous sufi scholar took care of him and educated him in fiqh and usul al-fiqh (principles of Islamic Jurisprudence).
During this period of his youth, Imam Ghazali had the opportunity to travel extensively. On one of his trips back to Tous, some thieves stole his books and manuscripts. From that day he began to memorize everything he wrote.
He lived in Nishapur and taught in the famous Nizamiyyah University in Baghdad (484 AH/ 1091 CE). He also lived in the Umayyad mosque and to this day there is a minaret named after him (Al-Ghazali minaret). He is the author of numerous books most notably the Ihya 'Ulum al-Din (a book on sufism and manners).
He died in the year 505 AH (1111 AD). He was fifty-five years old when he passed away and left behind a very valuable heritage and rich thought.
