Allah the Exalted and Magnificent once offered this choice to the beloved Muhammad ():

'Is it your preference to be a Servant Prophet or a Prophet King?'

Archangel Gabriel witnessed the humility of the glorious Messenger, who instantly responded:

'I prefer to be a Servant Prophet.'


(Khabar 75 was transmitted by the sage Ismai'il al-Harawi. It is recorded in Ibn Arabi's 'Mishkat al-Anwar')

Description:

Called by Moslems "the greatest master," Ibn Al-'Arabi was a Sufi born in twelfth-century Spain. The Bezels of Wisdom was written during the author's later years and was intended to be a synthesis of his spiritual doctrine. Bezel means a setting in which a gem, engraved with one's name, is set to make a seal ring. The setting in which Ibn Al-'Arabi has placed his spiritual wisdom are the lives of the prophets. It was in Damascus that he had the vision that prompted him to write this book. He describes it in his preface: "I saw the Apostle of God in a visitation…He had in his hand a book and he said to me, 'This is the book of the bezels of Wisdom; take it and bring it to men that they might benefit from it.'"

The book portrays the wisdom of love through Abraham, of the unseen through Job, of light through Joseph, of intimacy through Elias and so on. Ibn Al-'Arabi invites us in these pages to explore the inner spiritual meanings of the Quran, its heartful meanings. In one of his poems he stated, "Love is the creed I hold: wherever turns His camels, Love is still my creed and faith."
