This fist volume, of the three of which 'Abd al-Qadir's work consists, contains 215 of the 372 chapters. Based on the Dār al-yaqaza al-'arabiyya (1966-1967) and on the manuscript of the Library of Alger, this translation has taken into account the work done so far by Michel Chodkiewicz ( Editions du Seuil, 1982) and by A. Khurshīd (Alif Editions, 1996). It deals with mystic comments on Qur'anic verses and prophetic translations inspired by Ibn 'Arabi's work. They should be considered as an useful introduction to Futuḥāt and Fusus.
