    Here al-Ghazali attacked Aristotle and his followers, al-Farabi and Ibn Sina, particularly objecting to the Aristotelian notion of the eternity of the world, which he found irreconcilable with the Qur'anic description of God's creation of the world from nothing. Al-Ghazali also saw this as an idea which limited God in a totally unacceptable manner. Arabic (html text minor proof reading) This is the Arabic translation of the book which was originally written in Persian as “Nasihat al-Muluk” (only the first part of this book was written by al-Ghazali, however. cf. P. Crone “Did al-Ghazali Write a Mirror for Princes?” in: Jerusalem Studies of Arabic and Islam 10 () pp. ).

      Al-Ghazali can be considered one of the stalwarts of the traditional Sunnism and Sunni-Sufism, yet it would be mistake to consider him a forerunner of Salafism. Salafis are inspired by Ibn Taimiyya, a cleric who lived in XIII-XIV century, not by al-Ghazali. 2)From the two, Averroes and al-Ghazali, it is perhaps Averroes who resembles more a Salafi.   In the Islamic world, he played a decisive role in the defense of Greek philosophy against the onslaughts of the Ash'arite theologians (Mutakallimun), led by al-Ghazali (d. ), and the Abu'l-Walid Ibn Rushd, better known as Averroes, stands out as a towering figure in the history of Arab-Islamic thought, as well as that of West-European /5(9).

    Al-Ghazali and Averroes: Islamic “Nominalism” vs. Islamic “Realism,” Pt. II In the last entry I cautiously described the Medieval Arabic philosophers Al-Ghazali and Averroes as, respectively, an Islamic “nominalist” and an Islamic “realist.” Strictly speaking, I suppose the characteristic of Al-Ghazali with which I am here File Size: KB. Part 3, Book 2; Part 2, Book 7, Part 4, Book 6, have been translated into English by D. B. Macdonald in his Religious Attitude and Life in Islam Chicago, , Lectures 7 – 10, Journal of Royal Asiatic Society, – , and Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics, Vol. 2, pp. – 80, respectively.

Averroes responded to Al-Ghazali in his Incoherence of the Incoherence. First, he argued that the differences between the two positions were not vast enough to warrant the charge of unbelief.

In Faith and Reason in Islam, Averroes answers the question to what extent the Koran should be understood literally and, conversely, to what extent it should be "interpreted".That question is important to him because too elaborate interpretations of Scripture destroy the faith of those he calls "the common people," i.e.
