Ghazali also details the case of prudence or caution (wara) and its various degrees, including prudence of the upright and prudence of the saintly. Further helping to understand how the practice of what is lawful and desisting from that which is not becomes part of one's spiritual life. As ever he uses Quranic principles and examples of the Prophet Muhammad and his companions to justify his work.
