This lecture explores Qaysari’s introduction to his commentary on the Fuṣūṣ al-ḥīkam

Dawud Qaysari was among the most capable scholars of classical Sufism and the earliest commentators in the school of Ibn al-Arabi, articulating virtually all of his major themes. 

His Muqaddima is a foundational work, which may be considered a prerequisite for any study on Ibn Arabi’s work and the generations of scholars that followed him.

Dr. Mukhtar Ali, Visiting Professor of Ethics, College of Islamic Studies, will deliver the lecture on September 18, 2019, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, at the Auditorium, Minaretein (College of Islamic Studies building), Education City.
