Divine Sayings (Hardback)

Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi


Apart from the Quran, the most treasured sayings in the Islamic tradition are those of Muhammad himself, which form the Hadith, and none more so than the sayings of God transmitted by Muhammad, known as hadith qudsi ('sacred sayings'). Ibn Arabis Mishkat al-Anwar is one of the most important and influential early collections of hadith qudsi, presenting 101 sayings drawn from the oral tradition and written collections. These Divine Sayings are universal, expounding the divine root of all goodness and beauty, and can be appreciated by people from any background. Recurring themes include our utter dependence upon God, and His readiness to forgive and embrace those who truly turn to Him. This book is a most wonderful gift. It comprises an elegant English translation, and Arabic text, of the hadith qudsi, with notes, compiled from the best early manuscripts, plus Ibn 'Arabi's chains of transmission.
