Quran (95:2-3) and Amir Abd Al Kader al Jazairi: On Man

Quran (95:2-3) and Amir Abd Al Kader al Jazairi: On Man
Photo: Amir Abd Al-Kader al-Jazairi



Verily We created man in he most perfect rectitude
Then We reduced him to be the lowest of the low


I am God, I am creature; I am Lord, I am servant
I am the Throne and the mat one treads on; I am hell and I am the blissful eternity
I am water, I am fire; I am air and the earth
I am the how much and the 'how'; I am the presence and the absence.
I am the essence and the attributes; I am the near and the far
All being is my being; I am the Only; I am the Unique.

(From the Diwan of Amir Abdul Qader Al Jazairi)

'The Spiritual Writings of Amir Abd Al-Kader'
​By Michel Chodkiewicz


Behind 'Abd al-Kader's role of brilliant warrior lay another, that of spiritual master in the direct lineage of Ibn 'Arabi, the Shaikh al-Akbar (the greatest shaikh). The thirty-nine texts translated here were chosen because they represent the major themes of the teaching of 'Abd al-Kader. Many are commentaries on passages from the writings of Ibn 'Arabi. They offer a rare opportunity to share the illumination of a master writing from his own direct experience.
