The Spiritual Writings of Amir 'Abd al-Kader
SUNY Press, 1995 - Religion - 233 pages
Behind >Abd al-Kader’s role of brilliant warrior lay another, that of spiritual master in the direct lineage of Ibn >Arabi, the Shaikh al-Akbar (the greatest shaikh). The thirty-nine texts translated here were chosen because they represent the major themes of the teaching of >Abd al-Kader. Many are commentaries on passages from the writings of Ibn >Arabi. They offer a rare opportunity to share the illumination of a master writing from his own direct experience.
