Faith is one of the theological issues in Abrahamic religions. Many thinkers have talked about it and its relation to other topics such as knowledge and reason. Ghazali and Kierkegaard are among those scholars who have discussed faith according to their intellectual foundations. Ghazali believes that faith is an acknowledgment whose beginning is knowledge, but this faith is not of a completely rational type; rather, it is a certain and psychological acknowledgment. Kierkegaard had an existential viewpoint. He regards faith as an inexpressible and paradoxical truth. Faith is accompanied by passion and astonishment, and leads to unity. In this study, we try to compare the similarities and differences of the two thinkers’ viewpoints concerning faith.
