About this product
- DescriptionText in English & Arabic. If it is true, as Ibn 'Arabi claims, that voyaging never ceases in all worlds and dimensions, the paradigmatic voyages recounted in this remarkable book offer the reader an inexhaustible source of reflection. As a well-kwn Sufi saying puts it, 'the spiritual journey is called voyage (safar) because it unveils (isfar) the characters of the Men of God'. This book explores the theme of journeying and spiritual unveiling as it plays out in the cosmos, in scripture and within the soul of the mystic. Beginning with a series of cosmological contemplations, Ibn 'Arabi then turns to his own selective readings of Prophetic lore, in which he gives profound Muhammad, Adam, Ech, Noah, Abraham, Lot, Jacob and Joseph, and Moses. Angela Jaffray's translation of Kitab al-Isfar 'an nata'ij al-asfar brings this major treatise to an English-speaking audience for the first time. It is accompanied by a new edition of the Arabic text based in a manuscript in Ibn 'Arabi's own hand, an introduction and extensive tes. It also includes a rich in-depth commentary that will guide the reader through Ibn 'Arabi's subtle and allusive writing.
