About The Book

Ibn al-'Arabi and the Sufis is a fascinating and groundbreaking analysis of the extent to which various major Sufi figures contributed to the mystical philosophy of Ibn al-'Arabi. While recent scholarship has tended to concentrate on his teachings and life, little attention has been paid to the influences on his thought.

Each chapter is dedicated to one of Ibn al-Arabi's predecessors, from both the early and later periods, such as al-Bistami, al-Hallaj, and al-Jilani, showing how he is discussed in the works of the “Greatest Master” and Ibn al- attitude towards him.

This book brings into sharp relief the highly original nature of Ibn al- mystical theory, unprecedented in Islamic mysticism, and the unique way in which he interwove the ideas of others into his own thought.
