Not yet published. Available October 1st 2019
This work examines the influence of the school of Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi on the well-known Kubrawi masters. This path-breaking book is a study of major Kubrawi works and the manner in which the Kubrawis approached Ibn ‘Arabi’s ideas. By delving into the most important cornerstones of Ibn ‘Arabi’s worldview, such as wahdat al-wujud (unity of existence), al-insan al-kamil (Perfect Human Being) and asma wa sifat (God’s Names and Attributes), this work provides a comparative study of their reception in the thought of major Kubrawi mystics, especially that of Najm al-Din Kubra, Sa‘d al-Din amuyah, Aziz al-Din Nasafi, Ala al-Dawlah Simnani and Sayyid ‘Ali Hamadani.
