While We’re on the Subject of Imam al-Ghazali…

…where is he when you need him? We need another Hujjat-ul-Islam (the proof of Islam). We have all these “scholars” claiming that the Asharis and Maturidis made mistakes and following a madhhab is not necessary or it is but everyone, literate in Arabic or otherwise, is allowed to question the proofs of the scholars. Imam al-Ghazali was noted for the ability of tahfeem. Tahfeem in Arabic literally means to grill. Its usage is that if two people are debating something and one says something that made the other silent, that is tahfeem. We need someone who can refute these people and bring them back to the teachings of the scholars of the unbroken chain. While he is “grilling” everyone, he can also explain the virtues of Sufism just as Imam al-Ghazali would have done.

  1. Shaykh Hamza Yusuf said that Shaykh Abdul Hakim Murad is like the Ghazali of our times…. maybe he’s out there but no one is listening…

  2. Salams,

    You should write the biography of Imam Al Ghazali, as it definitiely proves the necessity of spirituality
