The book was written by Ibn al-‘Arabi, a renowned scholar, during a very significant time – the eleven nights of Ramadan in 595/1199. This meaningful piece of literature was not just any ordinary book, but was specifically dedicated to one of Ibn al-‘Arabi’s most devoted disciples – Badr al-Ḥabashi.
The book is an extensive exposition of the three levels of surrender (islām), faith (īmān), and right action (iḥsān). Within its pages, the author delves deep into the significance of each level and its corresponding degrees of potential realization. One of the author’s notable discussions within the book is on the seven external bodily parts, including eyes, ears, tongue, hands, stomach, genitals, and feet. Ibn al-‘Arabi explains how these different parts can be utilized in the act of Divine praise.
The author also highlights the importance of extending Divine mercy to others, emphasizing that this is the same mercy that has extended over us – hence we should extend it to others. It is important to note that this book is not exclusively meant for disciples but also for masters, as it represents the highest level attainable in the sacred Law of worship. The benefits of this book, according to the author, are immense and those who possess it will find sustenance in its pages with the powerful aid of God.
