According to al-Gazz?l?, the political power and religion has avery strong interdependence. This case he is expressed in terms of ad-d?n as?s waa?-?ul??n h?ri? (religion as a basis and sultan or the country as a protector). Thus,al-Gazz?l? firmly stated that the construct of the state and the government isdemand of religion (min dar?riyy?t asy-syari) that can not be ignored (l? sabi?la il? tarkih). Furthermore, in this article, showed that al-Gazz?l? considers the Imamateor the government is a successor of the Prophet. Its because of his function that inheren with the religious issues, so the caliph in running his governmentis regarded as a saint (muqaddas). About the source of authority of power, alGazz?l? considers that it is not a God given (theocracy) but by the support ofthe wider community represented by people who are influential (ahl asy-syawka)and followed by other people. Al-Gazz?l? stressed that the rise and fall of a rulerdepends entirely to the presence and absence of support from the community(Muslims).
