Ibn al-'Arabi and the Sufis is a fascinating and groundbreaking
analysis of the extent to which various major Sufi figures
contributed to the mystical philosophy of Ibn al-'Arabi. While
recent scholarship has tended to concentrate on his teachings and
life, little attention has been paid to the influences on his
thought. Each chapter is dedicated to one of Ibn al-'Arabi's
predecessors, from both the early and later periods, such as
al-Bistami, al-Hallaj, and al-Jilani, showing how he is discussed
in the works of the "Greatest Master" and Ibn al-'Arabi's attitude
towards him. This book brings into sharp relief the highly original
nature of Ibn al-'Arabi's mystical theory, unprecedented in Islamic
mysticism, and the unique way in which he interwove the ideas of
others into his own thought.
