Book 05 - The Openings Revealed in Makkah, Taschenbuch Series
By Shaykh al-Akbar Muhyiddin ibn al-Arabi
Translated by Shuayb Eric Winkel
The fifth of thirty-seven books of Ibn al-ʿArabī’s magnum opus al-Futūḥāt al-Makkīyah, translated and conveyed by Shuʿayb Dr Eric Winkel
In Book 5, Ibn al-ʿArabī has us commence our journey through the pillars of Islam, starting with ‘There is no god but God’ and continuing to the mysteries of purity.
Open your eyes and you will see
a mystery of purity, clear,
easy for the people of wakefulness and quick minds.
How many clean people are not described with being pure,
when they shun the sea at His Side and abstain?
