Book 3 – The Openings Revealed in Makkah, Taschenbuch Series (Ibn al-‘Arabi’s al-Futuhat al-Makkiyah)
The third of thirty-seven books of Ibn al-ʿArabī’s magnum opus al-Futūḥāt al-Makkīyah, translated and conveyed by Shuʿayb Dr Eric Winkel
Chapters 17 through 40 provide the recognition of Jesus and the Pivots associated with him, and of the Family of the House. We are led through alighting places that have many correspondences, especially to nineteen places in the Qurʾān. Ibn al-ʿArabī speaks of his father on his death bed, who tells him, ‘Everything I heard from you: you would say it and I would not acknowledge it, and maybe sometimes I would reject some of it; but it is exactly as I am witnessing it (now).’
By Shaykh al-Akbar Muhyiddin ibn al-Arabi
