Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111 CE) is a towering figure in the history of Islamic thought. But did you know that during his lifetime he was a saint, a scholar and a penniless wanderer?


In this short biography you will discover how al-Ghazali rose from his humble background as a fatherless young boy from a small town, to become a successful student, a great teacher and the most famous Islamic thinker of his time. It also reveals why, after years of success, he left behind his prestigious position and his family, and became a poor traveller trying to experience the peace of a content inner life.


Written in a simple style, with explanations, illustrations and images aplenty, this short book brilliantly narrates the life and times of al-Ghazali.
