by Ibn Ajiba and David Streight and Jean-Louis Michon




Overview -
Ibn 'Ajiba wrote his fahrasa, or autobiography, not for the pleasure of talking about himself but to celebrate God's kindness.

This new English translation by David Streight is based on a contemporary French translation from the Arabic by the Swiss scholar Jean-Louis Michon.
