Description from the publisher: This is the first English translation of Ibn ‘ArabI’s Hilyat al-abdal, a short work which he wrote in the space of an hour during his Meccan period as something that would be “of assistance for those on the Path to true happiness”. Beginning with an anecdote concerning one of his Andalusian companions, Ibn ‘Arabi proceeds to explain the exterior qualities of the spiritually transformed (abdal). He particularly focuses on the four essential prerequisites of spiritual discipline: silence, seclusion, hunger and vigilance, describing how these appear among both aspirants and the spiritually realised.
