________________________________________________

 

​The noble Moses, upon him be peace, inquires:

O Lord, if You are distant, I will call out to You; if You are near; I will confide in You with intimate tones.

Allah Most High answers:

I am the intimate Friend of the persons who practice Divine Remembrance by repeating My Name, and I always keep company with them.

What is the act of devotion You prefer over all others, O Lord?
That you extend the repetition of My Name into every conscious state.

(This khabar was transmitted through the sage al-Maqburi and is recorded in Ibn Arabi's Mishkat al-Anwar)

Description:

A collection of 101 hadith sayings, this work is one of the most important and influential early collections of hadith qudsi. Falling into three categories, the first 40 sayings each have a full, unbroken chain of transmission that goes back to God through the medium of the Prophet Muhammad. The second category are sayings mostly taken from well-known written collections. The final section is drawn from similar books, with Ibn 'Arabi adding one extra hadith, orally transmitted. Comprised of a full introduction explaining the meaning of Hadith, the text stresses the importance of this tradition in Ibn 'Arabi's writing.
