We learn through his biographies of Sufi Saints what Ibn Arabi considered important in spiritual attainment. He never praises any Sufi for giving good talks, but paises Sufis, who, when they were in the audience , would inspire others to give great talks....

The work is naturally divided into three sections of roughly equal length by those biographical accounts. More fundamentally, however, as we shall see, there is a thematic division corresponding to the classic Sufi itinerary of mi'râj (ascent), pp. 31-88; the ruju' (return), pp. 139-176; and the divine sphere (mushâhada) where these multiple mi'râjs and ruju's actually take place, pp. 88-139.

This book is a fascinating account by Ibn 'Arabi, the great 12th century Andalusian Sufi mystic and scholar, of other profound sufis of his time, in response to a friend's criticism that such mystics were lacking in their times.
Not much can be said when the author is Ibn Arabi. Truly inspiring. Loved it!
