Book Recommendation: SUFI METAPHYSICS & QUR'ANIC PROPHET

Salaamun alaikum,

I recommend the title above for interested readers.

Ibn Arabi's Fusus Al-hikam was the primary stimulus for me to explore the notion that the personalities of al-quraan were archetypes which exist in the human world potentially and/or actually.

This book is an explanation of Ibn Arabi's ideas on the matter. While his notions aren't purely Quranic in my opinion, we can discern his world-view from this text and surmise that the world-view itself is indeed Quranic.

Peace be upon you MQ,

Sounds good brother, I will look for that and the other book you requested quite a while ago.

Thanks.

Tay

Peace M,

Thanks for the recommendation. While this thread is open, could you and anyone else please post references to any other 'must-read' titles. I was compiling a booklist for the past year and lost it when I swapped out my hard drive.

Thanks.

Peace,
Tay

Peace be upon you Tay,

Metu Neter Volumes 1 and 2.

Listen, is there anyone here from Iran? I just saw a good program called Mystic Iran, I would like more info on the Dervishes and the history of "Sirus" (I think that was the name of the Persian "king")

Wikipedia should have some decent info.


"the Knower of the Unseen, and He reveals unto none His secret,
Save unto a messenger whom He has chosen, and He made an affirmer to proceed him and another to follow him.
That He may know that they have indeed conveyed the messages of their Lord. He is cognizant of all their doings, and He keeps account of all things."

72:26-28
