Lamp of Mysteries : A Commentary on the Light Verse of the Quran Paperback
Edited by Bilal Kuspinar
Text in English & Arabic. This book unearths a hidden treasure from the golden age of Ottoman scholarship, an original Arabic commentary by Isma'il Anqarawi on the Light Verse of the Quran, presented here in English for the first time.
A devoted follower of Rumi and Ibn 'Arabi, Anqarawi was a highly influential figure in the 17th-century Ottoman world.
Perhaps best known as a charismatic and beloved shaykh of the Sufi Mawlawi (Mevlevi) order, he was also a renowned author. "The Lamp of Mysteries" reveals profound insights into the famous and mysterious Light Verse.
Bilal Kuspinar has also provided a detailed account of Anqarawi's life and works, an analysis of the Commentary, and a critical edition of the Arabic text.
