Isma'il Anqarawi




Wherever we set foot, it was Your street.

Whatever corner we turned, it was Your name in the air.

We said, 'Surely there must be a road leading elsewhere?'

But every road we found, it led to You.


This book unearths a hidden treasure from the Golden Age of Ottoman scholarship: an original commentary by Ismail 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 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.
