Ibn ʿArabi’s Divine Sayings (Mishkat al-anwar) is one of the most important and influential early collections of hadith qudsi. It comprises 101 sayings, drawn from the oral tradition as well as written collections.

These Divine Sayings are universal in nature, expounding the divine root of all goodness and beauty, and can be appreciated by people from any background. Recurring themes include our utter dependence upon God, and His readiness to forgive and embrace those who truly turn to Him. This book is a most wonderful gift.

Divine Sayings is a translation of the full Arabic text, with notes, compiled from the best early manuscripts.
