This book is mainly based on Ibn Arabi's major comprehensive work of Al-Futuhat Al-Makkiyya. Therefore, because we are going to refer to this book often, we shall use a short reference style directly in the text; after each quotation from the Futuhat, we shall put medium brackets like that: [X.000.00] which means: [volume.page.line]. When the line number is omitted in rare cases this means that the reference is in the entire page, and in few cases a range of few pages is indicated like this example [II.229-231]. We have mainly used the standard edition of the Futuhat published by many publishers based on (photocopy of) the old edition of Bulaq 1329/1911 which lies in four volumes each about 600-700 pages of 35 lines; the page size is 20 by 27 cm (see the Bibliography). You should notice, however, that newer type-scripted editions maybe different although some of them are also four volumes.

In addition to the Futuhat, we also used short form of references to many other books by Ibn Arabi (like: Ayyam al-Sha n and Al-Masa il) and other related famous works (like William Chittick's two important works: The Sufi Path of Knowledge [SPK] and The Self-Disclosure of God [SDG]) as explained in the Bibliography. In most of these cases we put the short form of the reference followed by the page number, with only two exceptions for Osman Yahya's classification of Ibn Arabi's books and Ibn Arabi's book of Al-Masa il where we refer to the listed item number instead of the page number.

All references to the Holy Qur an shall be indicated also in the text and not in notes; after each verse quoted or meaning indicated in the text we shall add parenthesis like that (xx:yy) where xx refers to the number of Sura (chapter) and yy is the number of Aya (verse). As for the prophetic narrations we mainly used Kanz al- Ummal (the Treasure of the Workers) which includes most of the known hadith books, indexed and numbered according to the subject. We only needed to mention the number of the hadith, in this way: [Kanz: 0000].

Message from the Author:

I have no doubt that this is the most significant discovery in the history of mathematics, physics and philosophy, ever!

By revealing the mystery of the connection between discreteness and contintuity, this novel understanding of the complex (time-time) geometry, will cause a paradigm shift in our knowledge of the fundamental nature of the cosmos and its corporeal and incorporeal structures.

Enjoy reading...

As a result of the original divine manifestation, all kinds of motions are driven by Love and Passion. Who could possibly not instantly fall in love with this perfect and most beautiful harmony! Beauty is desirable for its own essence, and if the Exalted (Real) did not manifest in the form of beauty, the World would not have appeared out into existence.
paraphrased from: Ibn al-Arabi [The Meccan Revelations: II.677.12 - trsn. Mohamed Haj Yousef]
