Contemplation of the Holy Mysteries
(Mashahid al-asrar al-qudsiyya)
136 pages, 234 x 156 mm
ISBN: 0 9534513 4 8
Published: 2001 ANQA, OXFORD

Thought to be possibly Ibn 'Arabi's first book, the Contemplation of the Holy Mysteries is a major work of mystical literature. It was composed in Andalusia in 1194 (590 AH).

It consists of a series of 14 visions, in the form of dramatic conversations with the Divine, interspersed with dazzling visionary episodes. It is written in a style similar to that of the Mawaqif of al-Niffari, the famous tenth-century Iraqi saint.

These contemplations are full of astounding insights into the nature of existence, our relationship with Reality, and the way to achieve true happiness.

The English translation has been prepared by Pablo Beneito (who edited the original Arabic text) and Cecilia Twinch. It includes a full introduction and notes based on the commentary of one of Ibn 'Arabi's disciples.

You are yourself the cloud veiling your own sun! So recognize the essential Reality of your being!

About Muhyiddin, Ibn Arabi

Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage, Muhammad b. Ali Ibn 'Arabi is one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Known as Muhyiddin (the Revivifier of Religion) and the Shaykh al-Akbar (the Greatest Master), he was born in 560 AH (1165 AD) into the Moorish culture of Andalusian Spain, the centre of an extraordinary flourishing and cross-fertilization of Jewish, Christian and Islamic thought, through which the major scientific and philosophical works of antiquity were transmitted to Northern Europe. Ibn 'Arabi's spiritual attainments were evident from an early age, and he was renowned for his great visionary capacity as well as being a superlative teacher. He travelled extensively in the Islamic world and died in Damascus in 1240 AD.

He wrote over 350 works including the Fusûs al-Hikam, an exposition of the inner meaning of the wisdom of the prophets in the Judaic/ Christian/ Islamic line, and the Futûhât al-Makkiyya, a vast encyclopaedia of spiritual knowledge which unites and distinguishes the three strands of tradition, reason and mystical insight. In his Diwân and Tarjumân al-Ashwâq he also wrote some of the finest poetry in the Arabic language. These extensive writings provide a beautiful exposition of the Unity of Being, the single and indivisible reality which simultaneously transcends and is manifested in all the images of the world. Ibn 'Arabi shows how Man, in perfection, is the complete image of this reality and how those who truly know their essential self, know God.

Firmly rooted in the Quran, his work is universal, accepting that each person has a unique path to the truth, which unites all paths in itself. He has profoundly influenced the development of Islam since his time, as well as significant aspects of the philosophy and literature of the West. His wisdom has much to offer us in the modern world in terms of understanding what it means to be human.

O My God, how often do I cry out to You as one who calls, when [in truth] You are the One who calls the caller
