Al-Ghazali maps out for the reader his quest for the truth, how he arrived at Sufism and what it provided him with. The narrative begins with Al-Ghazali describing his fame among people, his wide knowledge, and his material comfort. His spiritual side is suffering, however, as he realizes he does not have conviction in what he is teaching. He observes that he is Muslim with his particular theology, only due to his parents and upbringing, not unlike the situation of Jews, Christians or Zoroastrians. The book concludes with Al-Ghazali discarding all other "paths" and arriving at the Sufis. The Sufis claim their is way correct and the way to see the truth is to experience it.

It was to refute their doctrine on these twenty questions that we composed our book The Incoherence. However, it appeared to these philosophers, because they had studied nature so much, that the equilibrium of the mixture of humors had a great effect on the resulting constitution of the animal’s powers. Hence they thought that man’s rational power was also dependent on the mixture of his humors and that its corruption would follow the corruption of the mixture of his humors, and so that power would cease to exist.

Al-Munqidh min Al-Dalal, Imam Abu Hamid Al Ghazali, . One of the most remarkable documents to have come down from classical Islamic civilization, this autobiography of the most influential thinker of medieval Islam (1058-1111) describes his education and his intellectual crisis, which left him so paralyzed by doubt that he was forced to resign the most distinguished academic appointment. His faith returned after years of wandering and seeking, during which he achieved direct knowledge of God in the form of the illuminative experience of the Sufis.

Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111) is generally acclaimed as the most influential thinker of medieval Islam. Among his most outstanding contributions to Muslim intellectual life were masterly defenses of Islamic orthodoxy, mysticism and law against the attacks of those who advocated purely legalistic or entirely esoteric readings of the religion. He hence articulated the Islam of the middle way, in balance between the extremes of the letter and the spirit.
