“U islamu su se razvila složena i prefnjena kosmološka učenja kako na osnovu islamskih izvora tako irazličitih domaćih svjetonazora predislamskih društava. Ono što islamsku kosmologiju čini izrazito islamskom jestečinjenica da ishodišno kur’ansko gledište objedinjuje i usklađuje preuzete koncepte. Izraz “islamska kosmologija”se može općenito razumjeti u značenju svjetonazora zabilježenog u Kur’anu i Hadisu te prihvaćenog izričito ilineizričito […]

“Sukladno autorovom mišljenju, suzam se ponajbolje može ra-zumjeti u odnosu na samo ustrojstvo islamske tradicije. Izrazitaodlika sujskog pristupa islamskoj tradiciji jest usredotočenje nastapanje duše s Božanskom Riječju, uvijek na osnovu obrascakoji je utvrdio Vjerovjesnik. Sujski učitelji su često govorili ocilju islamske tradicije u viduostvarenja koje zahtijeva preo-bražavanje samog bića tragaoca, pri čemu je nezaobilazna ulo-ga Kur’ana. […]
Abstract: “The Revival of the Religious Sciences is an enduring masterpiece of the Islamic tradition, a summa of Islamic religious disciplines (law, theology, etc.) within a rubric of virtue ethics, written by one of the most renowned thinkers of that tradition, Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (d. 1111). Admirers of the book in subsequent centuries enthused that, […]
Abstract: The Qur’ān lies at the heart of Muslim spirituality, and provides the fount and wellspring for its doctrines and practices. To the extent that classical Islam as a whole was animated in both form and spirit by its central Scripture, all the way from law and ritual to theology and the arts, it would […]
Abstract: “This paper takes a novel approach to the question of when and how the text of the Quran was codified into its present form, usually referred to as the Uthmanic text type. In the Quran the phrase niʿmat all āh/rabbi-ka “the grace of god/your lord” can spell niʿmat “grace” either with t āʾ or t āʾmarbūṭ ah. By examining 14 early Quranic manuscripts, it is shown that this phrase […]
Abstract: “Rumi’s teachings, whether in the Maṯnawi or his other works, focus on “the roots of the roots of the roots of the religion” (o ṣul o ṣul o ṣul al-din, Ma ṯ nawi I intro.). By “the religion” he means the Islamic tradition, not religion generically; he is saying that his works go to the heart and soul of the Quranic message and do not get mired […]

Abstract: “The article examines early Sufi notions of rida, usually translated as ‘‘contentment,’’ ‘‘satisfaction,’’ and ‘‘good-pleasure.’’ It does so through a close textual analysis of some of the most important works of the tradition authored up until what has been identified as the ‘‘formative period of Sufi literature,’’ a period which ends in the 11th century. In the process, the article situates rida within the larger context of […]
Abstract: “The incantation of the Simurgh awakens those who are asleep and its abode is on the cosmic mountain (Qāf ). Its incantation reaches everyone but few listen to it. Everyone is with it and yet the majority are without it. . . . This Simurgh flies without moving and takes to the air without wings, and approaches without […]
Abstract: “When William C. Chittick published his encyclopedic Suﬁ Path of Knowledge: Ibn al-‘Arabi’s Metaphysics of Imagination almost thirty years ago, he made readily available to the English speaking world,for the ﬁrst time, lengthy excerpts drawn primarily from the thirteenth century Andalusian thinker’s most comprehensive summation of Suﬁ thought in the Meccan Revelations. Chittick’s most signiﬁcant contribu-tion, arguably, lay in the virtually unparalleled lucidity with […]
