Review:

'' Ibn al-'Arabi's magnum opus, al-Futūhāt al-Makkiyya, 'The Meccan Openings', is known at least by name to all students of Sufism. In spite of its importance for Islamic thought in general, and Ibn al-'Arabi in particular, few scholars have taken advantage of its enormous riches because of the numerous difficulties connected with reading and understanding the text'' --- Professor William Chittick
