    Magnificent

    I'll be honest. This translation can sometimes be hard to penetrate but despite this, it is a hugely laudable effort. Ibn Arabi is one of the most esteemed figures in Sufism and considered one of the Great Masters of Islamic mysticism. The prayers are uplifting and revelatory and if repeated in the cycle presented, they really do purify and protect the heart, directing it to its Higher Purpose. I used to read the prayers regularly and then lapsed. Just two days of re-starting the cycle has an immediate impact. But note, focus on the prayer when reading it, don't let yourself be distracted. If you immerse yourself in it, its power washes over you.

    This translation is a collaboration of great concentration that charges the heart of the reader and thus relieves the dilutive forces of existence.

    Yes it would be nice if the Arabic text was transliterated but it's even harder to find good translations of these gems. So really appreciated this book - a real find and one I will refer to time and time again no doubt.

    The most illuminating collection of prayers, beautifully translated with excellent notes to aid understanding of the tradition of Ibn Arabi and his metaphysics
