A contemporary of Shaykh Ibn Arabi, rahmatullahi 'alayhi,
Shaykh Ahmad al-Buni, rahmatullahi 'alayhi,
is best known for writing one of the most important books of his era; the Shams al-Ma'arif
, a book that is still regarded as the foremost occult text on talismans [Ruqya/Taweezat
] and divination.
Instead of sihr
(Sorcery), this kind of magic was called Ilm al-Hikmah
(Knowledge of the Wisdom), Ilm al-Simiyah
(Study of the Divine Names) and Ruhaniyat
(Spirituality). Most of the so-called mujarrabât
("time-tested methods") books on sorcery in the Muslim world are simplified excerpts from the Shams al-ma`ârif
. The book remains the seminal work on Theurgy and esoteric arts to this day.
Shaykh Sharf al-Din Ahmad ibn ‘Ali al-Buni al-Maliki
