Description :

Jesus Son of Mary in the Qur'an & According to the Teachings of Ibn 'Arabi.

The Qur'an commentary and explanations are largely based on grammatical syntax and complex meanings of Arabic tri-partite roots to show linkages between Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Qurʾānic chapters deal with relevant extracts from Ibn Arabiís Fusus al-Hikam and Futuhat al-Makkiyya on John the Baptist, Zachariah, the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, Jesus, and Mary.

"An important and theologically-nuanced exploration of Islamís Jesus,
enriched throughout by the authorís deep engagement with the Sufism
of Ibn ʿArabī."---Timothy J. Winter,
Lecturer in Islamic Studies, University of Cambridge

Gloton is a major authority on Ibn ʿArabī studies in French. This book is a summary of his research on the topic of Jesus and Mary in Islam through the Akbarian perspective, using Qurʾānic vocabulary and syntax to explain the multi-layered meanings in the Qurʾān.

The esoteric perspective of Ibn ʿArabī is woven into the text, providing insights into the nature of Jesus and Mary and proving the universality of the three Abrahamic revelations.
A good balance is presented between the esoteric approach and an historical and linguistic analysis of the subject.

The book is in ten chapters, the first 7 dealing with a detailed analysis of the characteristics of Islam: universality, unity, shahada (testimony of faith), salawat (Blessings upon Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ,), and then proceeding with the discussion on Jesus, Mary and the Christians in the Qurían, with commentaries of each relevant chapter of the Qurían, verse by verse. Chapters 8-10 deal with relevant extracts from Shaykh ibn al-Arabiís Fusus al-Hikam and Futuhat al-Makkiyya on John the Baptist, Zachariah, the Prophet Muhammad, Jesus, and Mary. The book is concluded by a detailed documentation of the chronology of the pertinent Quríanic verses and side comments.

Shaykh al-Akbar : Muhi'y ad-Din Ibn al-'Arabi,
'alayhi ar-Rahman w'al Ridwan, one of the greatest mystics of any age, was born in Murcia (Spain) in the year 1165 (Common Era), and from his earliest youth displayed remarkable intellectual and spiritual aptitude. He travelled extensively throughout the Islamic world, conversing with mystics, divines and philosophers. His teaching is based on the primordial principle, which underlies all spiritual traditions, of the absolute unity of existence.

In more than 400 books the meanings and expression of this principle are set down with extraordinary clarity and fullness. Shaykh Ibn 'Arabi, alayhir rahman, passed away in Damascus in 1240 CE. His influence is pervasive and profound, and he is known to many as al-Shaykh al-Akbar - 'the Greatest Teacher'.
