Ibn Arabi [Sufi mystic] - Poetry and Esoteric Works (17 books)

MUHYIDDIN IBN AL-ARABI (1165-1240) was a celebrated Sufi mystic, poet and
philosopher who became known within the Islamic world simply as Sheikh al-Akbar
("the Greatest Master"). He gave the esoteric, mystical dimension of Islamic
thought its first full-fledged philosophic expression.

He wrote over 350 works including the Fusus al-Hikam ("Bezels of Wisdom"), an
exposition of the inner meaning of the wisdom of the prophets in the Judaic/
Christian/ Islamic line, and the Futuhat al-Makkiyya ("The Meccan Revelations"), a
vast encyclopaedia of spiritual knowledge which unites and distinguishes the three
strands of tradition, reason and mystical insight. In his Diwan and Tarjuman al-
Ashwaq he also composed some of the finest poetry in the Arabic language.

Firmly rooted in the Quran, Ibn Arabi's 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 and can be seen in
countries as far apart as Spain and Indonesia, as well as significant aspects of
the philosophy and literature of the West. His wisdom has much to offer the modern
world in terms of understanding what it means to be human.
