“The Arabi“ is a story of adventures in whipping sands and blistering heat. A titanic thinker and scholar who spent his days drifting through the world and writing his meditations, Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi is the Leonardo da Vinci of the East. This book combines his explorations and wanderings across the planet with his philosophical explorations and wanderings across the soul and the mind.
“The Arabi” is a novel about the life of the great sufi thinker Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi and his travels around the world. He wonders the Earth in solitude, keeping only a few friends and fewer posessions. His ideas are his greatest treasures, and he keeps careful inventory of them. Moving from Morocco through Tunisia and Egypt all the way across Northern Africa into what is present day Saudi Arabi and Mecca, the transient philosopher drifts over many miles on a desert breeze. A meditation pressed into novel form, this story connects the Arabi’s travels around the world to his travels around the soul. You see the development of a spiritually mature and profound man from beginning to end. The style of the writing and the flow of the translation is such that the essence which characterizes the whole in present in each sentence. The whole text is written in a calm and profound voice, like deep resonations coming up from the center of the earth.
