Volume 1 includes the first two books of the thirty-seven books of Ibn ‘Arab?’s greatest work al-Futuhat al-Makkiyah (The Openings in Makkah). The Greatest Teacher, al-shaykh al-akbar, Ibn ‘Arab? dictated to his close friends this work of over 10,000 manuscript pages depicting the extraordinary vision of the Youth he encountered while circling the Ka‘bah in Makkah. Despite its clear provenance as a completely accurate work, from the hand and mind of its transcriber, and its reputation through the centuries as the most significant and profound reflection of Islamic thought, the Futuhat al-Makkiyah has never been translated from the original classical Arabic in its entirety.
