Confronting and Guiding
The Theologians, Authoritarians, Talkers/Talks (Kalam and Mutakallemon) are
those who believe in opinion and examination, together with the secular
politicians and their affiliations, The Christian who reject Prophet Muhammad
and the rest of the Prophets of Allah, Jews who reject Prophet Muhammad, and
the rest of the Prophets of Allah and the Muslims who do not practice Science of
Spiritual Perfection (Ihsan) Battiniya the people who covet and conceal their
spiritual false orders, Zahiriya (and Kharijis: the Wahabis), and Philosophers.
Admiring the Sufis: the people who follow the Science of Spiritual Perfection
(Ihsan)

Algazle (al-Ghazali, died 505/1058-1111 A.D)
Deep study of al-Ghazali may suggest to Muslims steps to be taken if they are to
deal successfully with the contemporary situation. Christians (Nazarenes) at the
west, too, now that the world is in a cultural melting-pot, must be prepared to
learn from Islam, and are unlikely to find a more sympathetic (spiritual) guide
than al-Ghazali.
