“Caring for the Ill” – Kristin Zahra Sands


God will say on the Day of Resurrection, “O child of Adam, I was sick but you did not visit me.”  [The child of Adam] says, “My Lord, how could I visit you when you are the Lord of all beings?”  God says, “But didn’t you know that my servant so-and-so was sick and yet you did not visit him?  Did you not know that if you had visited him, you would have found me present with him? O son of Adam, I asked you for food but you did not feed me.”  [The child of Adam] says, “My Lord, how could I feed you when you are the Lord of all beings?”  God says, “Didn’t you know that my servant so-and-so asked you for food and you did not feed him?  If you had given him food, you would have found that in my presence.  O son of Adam, I was thirsty but you did not give me water.”  [The child of Adam] says, “My Lord, how could I give you water when you are the Lord of all beings?”  He says, “My servant so-and-so asked you for water but you did not give it to him.  If you had given him water, you would have found that in my presence.”

“White Death: Ibn ‘Arabi on the Trials and Virtues of Hunger and Fasting,” Journal of the American Oriental Society 141, no. 3 (2021): 577-586. – Atif Khalil


The article presents an analysis of Ibn al-ʿArabī’s (d. 1240) treatment of fasting and hunger as it appears in chapters 106 and 107 ofal-Futūḥāt al-makkiyya (Meccan revelations). In the process of examining this very short section of the encyclopedic text, the essay both draws out the deeper theological significance of hunger and fasting and highlights the virtues and trappings of the spiritual exercise in the mystic’s thought. An attempt is also made to situate some of Ibn al-ʿArabī’s ideas within the broader context of the earlier Sufi tradition to which he was heir”


Review of Yousef Casewit’s “The Mystics of al Andalus” – Michele Petrone, Medieval Encounters 26 (2020)

Abstract :

“Before being a work on the life and thought of Barrajān, the book of Y. Casewit is a modern introduction to the mystical movements that sprung up in al-Andalus, starting from the tenth century. In this review I will avoid giving a summary of the work, which is already provided in a thoughtful preface to the book. What seems to be more important to note is the methodology the authoruses to describe the thought of Ibn Barrajān. Contemporary scholarly works on medieval Islamic thought seem to befocused on the reconstruction of networks. The circulation of diverse ideas in al-Andalus has been the object the attention of a number of studies, all reviewed by the author in the introduction of his book. This preliminary over- view is carried out not only as a state of the art. Casewit here dealt with the scholarship devoted to the reconstruction of a framework of historical and philosophical inquiry in tenth- to thirteenth-century al-Andalus. The issues of bāṭinism, Ismaili  influences, and the role of the Rasāil Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʾ  are synthetically discussed and establish a large framework for the following inquiry. The most important part of the preliminary phase of the research is the definition of the role (if any) played by al-Ghazālī in the formation of Ibn Barrajān’s thought”
