The Revival of the Religious Sciences
Iḥiyāʾ ʿulūm ad-dīn (English: The Revival of the Religious Sciences Arabic: احياء علوم الدين) is an 11th-century book written by Abū Ḥāmid Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad al-Ghazali. The book was composed in Arabic and was based on personal religious experience. It is regarded as one of his chief works and a classic introduction to the pious Muslim's way to God. Originally spanning over 40 volumes, it deals with the principles and practices of Islam and demonstrates how these can be made the basis of a reflective religious life, thereby, attaining the higher stages of Sufism.
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 shorter 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.
