Mohamed Haj Yousef, PhD, studied physics in Syria and at Cambridge and had an academic career teaching the subject, but has had a second career as a scholar of Ibn 'Arabi and has written several books including: Ibn 'Arabi: Time and Cosmology and Shams al-Magreb (in Arabic). In addition he runs a website about Ibn 'Arabi (www.ibnalarabi.com), and teaches at United Arab Emirates University.
The Single Monad Model explains for the first time in history the importance of the “week” as a basic unit of space and time together. Ibn Arabi is the only scholar who was able to formulate a unique cosmological model that is capable of explaining our observations as well as many phenomena in physics and cosmology.
This book is one of two unique versions of one of Ibn Arabi's masterworks: the Turjumân al-Ashwâq and his own commentary on it: Dhakhâìr al-Aălâq. This great work by Ibn Arabi has always been characterized by its bilateral nature; on the outer form it is wonderful pure love poetry, yet it has a distinctive inner interpretation on the spiritual and divine planes.
