Abstract


There has been an overwhelming worldwide consensus among scholars that Al Ghazali was blessed with a great mind. Through an examination of the writing of Al Ghazali, this paper attempts to study his theory and method of interpretation, analysed within socio-political and historical context that tended to inform the development of his thought in the light of hermeneutics and modern approaches to the Qur’an. This study found that the Qur’anic hermeneutics methodology has built by Al Ghazali as one of his efforts in projecting the role and value of Qur’an to the Muslim community in order to put the Qur’an as the supreme source of knowledge and truth.
