Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi considered the Fusûs al-Hikam, his last major opus, to be the most important of his more than 350 books.
The theme is the inner meaning of the 27 prophets mentioned in the Quran from Adam to Muhammad: the infinite wisdom which is at once unique in itself and many-faceted in its representation. The Fusûs is simultaneously an explanation of the most profound meaning of mans existence and perfectibility and an esoteric exegesis of the Quran.
Ibn Arabi says in the preface of this book:
I saw the Envoy of God (may God bless him and give him peace) in a dream-vision of good news (mubashshira), which I had in the last 10 days of Muḥarram in the year 627H in the city of Damascus: in his hand was a book, and he said to me: “This is the book of the Fuṣūṣ al-ḥikam, take it and bring it out to people who will benefit from it.” I replied: “Hearing and obedience are due to God, His messenger and the people entrusted with authority amongst us, as we have been ordered”... I communicate nothing that has not been communicated to me, nor do I reveal in these lines anything but what has been revealed to me. I am neither a prophet nor a messenger: I am but an heir, one who labours for the good of the other world.
It is from God, so listen! And it is to God, so return!
When you have heard what He has given to you, become aware
Then with understanding, distinguish all the details of the whole and bring it together
Then bestow it upon the one who seeks it – do not withhold it!
This is the Mercy which has extended over you – so extend it!
