This introduction to Ibn 'Arabi's Meccan Illuminations highlights the mysticism and realization of Sufi spiritual life, providing an intellectually penetrating look without requiring specialized knowledge from the reader.
The Fusus al-Hikam is acknowledged to be a summary statement of the sufi metaphysics of the “Greatest Master”, Ibn ‘Arabi (d.1240). It is also recognised that the Fusus is a work of great complexity both in its ideas and its style.
Ibn 'Arabi is one of the greatest writers of mystical literature of any era. The voyages recounted in the enigmatic Secrets of Voyaging offer readers an inexhaustible source of reflection on the nature of the journeys of life.
