The Written World Of God

Existence is a letter, you are its meaning

And in the world of creation I have no hope other than Him (Ibn ʿArabī)

It is with very great pleasure that Anqa Publishing announce the publication of this ground-breaking book, which introduces readers to one of the fundamental areas of symbolical knowledge in Sufism: the letters of the Arabic alphabet.

For the first time in English there is now a systematic overview of the science of letters (ʿilm al-ḥurūf) according to the great Andalusian spiritual master, scholar, poet and philosopher Ibn ʿArabi (d. 1240). 

"Through meticulous and thorough research, Dr. Rašić has shone important light on this essential and vast region of the authentic teaching of the greatest master of Sufism. This book opens a very welcome door to the further study of what has been a too-long-neglected - sometimes unfairly disparaged - feature of the writings of Ibn ʿArabi in particular and Sufism in general.” (Todd Lawson, Toronto)
