Seek the company of the men of knowledge. Listen to their words of wisdom, for the hearts which are adamant become alive, warmed by the light of wisdom, as the sleeping earth turns green with the spring rain. Fear Him, but keep hoping, and love Him. If you say that you have only one heart which is all filled with the love of this world, know that the faithful one has two hearts, neither of which was created for the love of this world.

Seek the company of the men of knowledge. Listen to their words of wisdom, for the hearts which are adamant become alive, warmed by the light of wisdom, as the sleeping earth turns green with the spring rain.
Fear Him, but keep hoping, and love Him. If you say that you have only one heart which is all filled with the love of this world, know that the faithful one has two hearts, neither of which was created for the love of this world. One fears Allah and the other hopes for His compassion.
Many of us carry heavy loads, responsibilities not lighter than the stone which the menial worker carries on his back. Know that an action which you wish to take will only succeed if you have strong faith. He whose faith is weak will perform weak action and will fail in the end. When Satan puts doubt in your heart, only your faith in Allah can pull it out. When laziness overcomes you, you can only conquer it by remembering death and the Day of Last Judgment. The condition of laziness, leaving things for tomorrow, is the way of the ones who think they will never die.
Never delegate anyone who is unintelligent and ignorant to do something for you, or in your name. It is better to do it yourself. Choose to participate in funerals rather than wedding feasts, for death reminds you of the hereafter while a feast ties you to this world. Even if you are offered the best food, it is better to feed it to a dog than to eat it yourself.
Are you lazier than the rooster which crows at dawn? Then why are you lying asleep when the rooster has awoken? This world is an ocean; so many drown in it.
You can only be safe in the boat of the fear, hope and love of Allah, whose sail is faith, whose rudder is trust in Allah. Nothing else will help you. If you wish to test a friend, try to make him angry. If he forgives you, keep him. If he gets angry, leave him. Someone asked another if he could have something sweet. He was brought a beef tongue. The man was annoyed, but the one who offered the tongue explained that it was the sweetest thing in the world. Then the man said, "Then bring me something bitter.
The Messenger of Allah saws said, "Speak softly; better still speak little; that is what the wise do. But the ones who do it are very few. And the strongest amongst them are the angels of Hell. The strength of mankind is limited. Knowing this, Allah only offers man things to do which are within the limits of his strength. It is He who orders the obligation to act and gives others the strength to act with His strength. The one who desires is always weaker that the one who is desired. In this verse, Allah declares the immense power of women, against which Allah mentions so many material and spiritual forces.
Allah has created His most powerful angels from the breath of women. That is why the Messenger of Allah saws says:. Speak less, for it is the way of the wise, although few can do it. Many of us taste pain, but there is no greater pain than poverty. Neither borrow nor lend, for doing so will keep you awake at night and poison your days. Beware of lying. To lie is like eating radishes, which whet your appetite but burn your stomach.
Feed the believers. Consult the ones who know in things you do. Love your friends. Respect the friends of your parents.
Wisdom makes the pauper sit on the throne of kings. Parents who discipline their children are like the gardeners who water their flowers. There are three tests for three qualities: Kindness is proven at the time of anger. Valor is proven at the time of tyranny. Generosity is proven at the time when one is in need oneself. That is why the Messenger of Allah saws says: "Fear the world and fear women.
Adaptation of Hd. Ibn Arabi's Futuhat Al-Makkiyya
Understanding, and Translating, the Futuhat al-Makkiyya. In fact the first complete critical edition in Arabic in twelve volumes was only produced in by Dr A. Mansoub, after eleven years of study of the original manuscripts. The level of expertise required even to understand this huge, complicated work has certainly been an obstacle to translation. Although the work has been described as a vast compendium, it is much more than that; neither is it an encyclopedia of concepts. It is above all an integral transcription of a complex, wholly palpable, experienced vision. Because these languages are difficult, and especially so for readers removed by seven centuries in time and in culture, religion, and worldview , scholars tend to emphasize the difficulty, even impossibility, of translating or managing to convey even portions of this text.
Eric Winkel, Volume 1 includes first two b]. 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. Ibn 'Arabi was a Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage, one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Known as Muhyiddin the Reviver of Religion and the Shaykh al-Akbar the Greatest Master , he was born in AH AD into the Moorish culture of Andalusian Spain, the centre of an extraordinary flourishing and cross-fertilization of Jewish, Christian and Islamic thought, through which the major scientific and philosophical works of antiquity were transmitted to Northern Europe.
Out of the works attributed to him, some are authentic while over are still extant. His cosmological teachings became the dominant worldview in many parts of the Islamic world. Ibn Arabi was Sunni , although his writings on the Twelve Imams were also popularly received among Shia. After his death, Ibn Arabi's teachings quickly spread throughout the Islamic world.
