The Revival of the Religious Sciences Arabic: Some consider Kimya-e-Sa’adat as a rewrite of the Ihya’e Ulum-ed’Deen, which is a common misconception. Kimya-e-Sa’adat is klmya than Ihya’e Ulum-ed’Deen, however Ghazali said that he wrote Kimiya-e-Sa’adat to reflect the nature of Ihya’e Ulum-ed’Deen and a few of his other theological writings.

Ghazali was the student of Al-Juwayniunder whom he studied religious sciences, including Islamic law and jurisprudence.

He left his post at the institution on request of pilgrimage. He went into a long journey, travelling to DamascusJerusalem and finally to Mecca to perform the pilgrimage. Ghazali throughout the journey, was going through an inner spiritual struggle, and he became attracted towards the pathway kima Sufis. This journey influenced Ghazali to write first on his autobiography Deliverance from Error and then his famous book The Revival of the Religious Sciencesexplaining in detail about mysticismtheologyIslamic rituals and practices.

The book is divided into four parts, each containing ten books. It explains the doctrines and practices of Islam and showed how these can be made the basis of a profound devotional life, leading to the higher stages of Sufismor mysticism.


Its great accomplishment was to bring orthodox Sunni theology and Sufi mysticism together in a useful, comprehensible manner to guide every aspect of Muslim life and death. Al-Ghazali, despite being a scholar, was not an expert in the field of hadith and thus the hadith narrations contained in his book were scrutinized.

Hadith experts like Ibn al-Jawzi and Ibn-ul-Qudamah al-Maqdisi researched and sorted out the hadith narrations contained in the book on the basis of their authenticities.

They then wrote the Minhaj-al-Qasidin and its overview called Mukhtasar. Saadwt al-Jawzi’s efforts in rewriting the book is considered important and while he had similarities with Al-Ghazali in terms of mastery in mysticism, he also had the mimya of expertise in the knowledge of the hadiths. The reworking by Ibn al-Jawzi focused on the re-examination kimga the existing hadiths, elimination of weak and disputed hadiths and their replacement with the authentic and sound ones so that the integrity of the book was not compromised.

Minhaj al-Qasidin was a fairly thick book and it was summarized in the form kimyw Mukhtasar by Imam Ibn Qudamah.

Whenever Ibn al Jawzi focused on the study of hadith, he found the Mukhtasar book in line with its name, aiming at summarizing and making the essence of the previous book to be more concise, organized, and easy to understand. It also added additional notes so that it may become an easy book for students to read.


Ibn Qudamah remarked that whenever he read Ibn al Jawzi’s Minhajul Qasidin, he felt that this book was very useful for society, so he would read it again in order to absorb the deeper meaning for the second time.

He said that his admiration for the book grew such that he also added some important missing topics that were readily available in other prominent books of his time with additional notes such as hadith and commentary. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Religion and American Culture”.
