The Openings Revealed in Makkah by Shaykh al-Akbar Muhyiddin ibn al-Arabi

The Futuhat Project is the translation project by Dr. Eric Winkel of the entirety of al-Futuhat al-Makkiyah, The Openings Revealed in Makkah by Muhyiddin Ibn al-Arabi. This volume contains Books 1 & 2 of The Openings Revealed in Makkah and the project is anticipated to be completed in 2022 in nineteen volumes. The Greatest Teacher, al-Shaykh al-Akbar, Ibn al-Arabi dictated to his close friends this work of over 10,000 manuscript pages depicting the extraordinary vision of the Youth he encountered while circling the Kabah in Makkah. 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. From 2012, Dr. Winkel has been working exclusively on translating this work in order to produce the first complete translation into English of the Futuhat al-Makkiyah.
