About The Author
Shaykh Akbar Muhiyuddin Ibn 'Arabi is one of the most inventive and prolific writers of the Islamic tradition, with a very large number of books and treatise attributed to him.
He wrote a number of works whilst still living in Andalusia, but the majority of his writings date from the second part of his life when he was living in Mecca, Anatolia and Damascus.
Of the heritage which has come down to us, there is a core of about 85 works which we can be certain are genuine works by him.
These include the encyclopaedic "Meccan Revelations" (al-Futuhat al-Makkiyya) which numbers more than 2,000 pages in the printed edition, and around 15 substantial long works, including a Diwan (collected poetry) of about 800 poems and his master work "The Ringstones of Wisdom" (Fusus al-Hikam).
The remainder are short treatises, some just a few pages long written in response to a student’s need or request.
His best known works are:
