The Openings Revealed in Makkah

The Openings Revealed in Makkah

Author: Shaykh al-Akbar Muhyiddin ibn al-Arabi & Shuayb Eric Winkel

This volume contains Books 3 & 4 of The Openings Revealed in Makkah and the project is anticipated to be completed in 2022 in nineteen volumes. With Books 3 & 4 we are still in the maʿrifah section of this great work, presented with knowings and tastings of what we must recognize. From 2012, Dr. Winkel has been working exclusively on translating this work in order to produce the first complete translation into English of the Futuhat-Makkiyah.

The Greatest Teacher, al-shaykh al-akbar, Ibn al-‘Arabī dictated to his close friends this work of over 10,000 manuscript pages depicting the extraordinary vision of the Youth he encountered while circling the Kaʿbah in Makkah. Despite its clear provenance as a completely accurate work, from the hand and mind of its transcriber, and its reputation through the centuries as the most significant and profound reflection of Islamic thought, the Futūḥāt al-Makkīyah has never been translated from the original classical Arabic in its entirety. From 2012, Dr. Winkel has been working exclusively on translating this work in order to produce the first complete translation into English of the Futūḥāt al-Makkīyah.
