________________________________________________

 
Who is man? An all-inclusive intermediate world
The qualities of created beings and God occur in him
What he contains is a microcosmic copy
of the Essence of God and His indescribable qualities
Linked with the subtleties of the world of power (jabarut)
Including the truths of the angelic world (malakut)
His inner dimension is drowned in the ocean of unity
His outer dimension is dry-lipped on the shore of separation
There is not even one of God's qualities
that is not present in his essence.
He is both deeply knowing and hearing and seeing
Speaking, willing, alive, and powerful


(Jami)

'In Search of the Lost Heart: Explorations in Islamic Thought'
by William C. Chittick (Author), Mohammed Rustom (Editor), Atif Khalil (Editor), Kazuyo Murata (Editor)

Description:

Renowned scholar William C. Chittick explores the worldview of Islam in a series of essays written over thirty-six years.

In Search of the Lost Heart brings together twenty-six essays by William C. Chittick, renowned scholar of Sufism and Islamic philosophy. Written between 1975 and 2011, most of these essays are not readily available in Chittick’s own books. Although this is a collection, its editors have crafted it to be a book “sufficient unto itself, which, when taken as a whole, can be said to explore the underlying worldview of Islam.”

Chittick draws upon the writings of towering figures such as Ibn al-‘Arabi, Rumi, and Mulla Sadra, as well as other important, but lesser-known thinkers, as he engages with a wide variety of topics, such as the nature of being and knowledge, the relationship between love and scriptural hermeneutics, the practical and theoretical dimensions of Islamic mysticism, the phenomenon of religious diversity, and the ecological crisis.
