Who was al-Ghazali?

Imam al-Ghazali lived nearly 1000 years ago and was considered by everyone to be the most brilliant scholar in the Islamic world. He noticed that even though Islam was only 400 years old, many people were simply going through the outward motions of their practices – like prayer and fasting. After a great personal trial, Imam al-Ghazali went on a retreat and became a humble janitor. Slowly, he began to see what the inner meaning was of all that Muslims are asked to do by God. Everything God asks of us is a way of polishing our hearts and creating a beautiful community. His guidelines are intended to ennoble the entire family and everyone in the ummah.
