Description from the publisher: The Futuhat al Makiyya, or the Meccan Openings or Revelations, is a vast compendium of metaphysics, cosmology, spiritual anthropology, psychology, and jurisprudence. Topics include the inner meanings of the Islamic rituals, the stations of travellers on the journey to God and in God, the nature of cosmic hierarchy, the spiritual and ontological meaning of the letters of the Arabic alphabet, the sciences embraced by each of the ninety-nine names of God, and the significance of the differing messages of various prophets.” This work was written over a twenty-year period as Ibn ‘Arabi travelled in the Near East, and revised in a second recension during the time he lived in Damascus.
