Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali (born 1058 in Tus -1111), Muslim theologian and philosopher, known as Algazel to the western medieval world. Al-Ghazali, or al-Ghazzali as he is written sometimes, contributed significantly to the development of a systematic view of Sufism and its integration and acceptance in mainstream Islam. Al-Ghazali was both a Sufi and a scholar of orthodox Islam, belonging to the Shafi school.

He is also viewed as the key member of the influential Asharite school of early Muslim philosophy and the most important refuter of Mutazilites.
