While used for centuries in Sufi circles, the prayer known as 'The Most Elevated Cycle' or 'The Prayer of Protection', had never before been available in English. This book provides a lucid English translation of this beautiful and powerful prayer written by the great Sufi master, Muhyi al-Din Ibn 'Arabi, as well as a transliteration for those unable to read Arabic but who wish to recite it in its original language. It also delves into the prayer's contemporary life and historical transmission and gives details of generations of well-known scholars and Sufi masters who transmitted the prayer, providing an intimate insight into Islamic history.

"The importance of having a stable text with full vocalisation based upon the best manuscripts is evident. But the author's careful study of the chains of transmission and the detailed information about the recitation of the prayer in the contemporary world are also of the highest interest." Prof Michel Chodkiewicz
