Description :

The master of Islamic spirituality describes the Mysteries of the sacred Pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah, whilst at the same time relates the divine law from every perspective.


The luminous writings of Muhy'uddin Ibn al-Arabi, May Allah be pleased with him, weave a vast mystic theology emerging from his own consummate spiritual realisation. Because of the advanced nature of his teachings he has been known for 800 years as the Shaykh al-Akbar, or the Greatest Master. Even in recent years however, access to Ibn Arabi has been difficult and translation daunting. Previously only short extracts of this text were available in English. 

 
'' 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.



Aisha Bewley: Aisha Abdurrahman at Tarjumana Bewley is one today’s most prolific translators of classical Arabic work into English. Aisha Bewley not only understands Arabic but she is also aware of the basic meanings and nature of teachings and history of Islam. Her knowledge is born of experience and direct transmission, not merely academic theory and learning by rote. For more than twenty-five years she has been concerned with making the contents of many classical works in Arabic more Accessible to English-speaking readers for the first time, including Ash-Shifa of Qadi “Iyad.
