Al-Ghazali is a great thinker and scholar with work in various fields of science such as religion, philosophy, Sufism, morals, politics, and others. The greatest work of Imam Al-Ghazali is the book of Ihya ‘Ulum Ad-Din, where education according to Al-Ghazali is a process of activities carried out systematically to give birth to progressive changes in human behavior. In Al-Ghazali's view, central in education is the heart because the heart is the essence of humanity because human substance is not located in the physical elements, but resides in the heart and views humans as theocentric, so the concept of education is more directed at the formation of moral character.
