This study found that; First, al-Ghazali's thoughts on Islamic education are (a) the Qur'an and Hadith are the main foundations of education; (b) getting closer to Allah is the main intention of educators, then acting as an example for their students, and being competent in teaching; (c) the students must stay away from immorality, respect teachers and study diligently by exploring the lessons given by the teacher; (d) the curriculum as an educational tool must be adapted to the development of students; (e) students must be kept away from bad associations, because a bad environment will affect the development of the students, especially in the family, school or community environment.
