Abū Ḥāmid Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad al-Ghazālī was one of the most prominent and influential philosophers, theologians, jurists, and mystics of Sunni Islam. He was of Persian origin.

“Declare your jihad on thirteen enemies you cannot see -egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. If you can master and destroy them, then you will be read to fight the enemy you can see.”
Al-Ghazzali

“إن مشاهدة الفسق و المعصية على الدوام تزيل عن قلبك كراهية المعصية، و يهون عليك أمرها، و لذلك هان على القلوب معصية الغيبة لإلفهم لها، و لو رأوا خاتما من ذهب أو ملبوسا من حرير على فقيه لاشتد إنكارهم عليه، و الغيبة أشد من ذلك! ـ”
أبو حامد الغزالي, بداية الهداية

“قال الخليل بن أحمد : الرجال أربعة، رجل يدري ويدري أنه يدري فذلك عالم فاتبعوه، ورجل يدري ولا يدري أنه يدري فذلك نائم فأيقظوه، ورجل لا يدري ويدري انه لا يدري فذلك مسترشد فأرشدوه، ورجل لا يدري أنه لا يدري فذلك جاهل فارفضوه.”
أبو حامد الغزالي, إحياء علوم الدين
