Cosmology in Medieval Islam - Sufi Cosmology

Sufi Cosmology

Sufi cosmology (Arabic: الكوزمولوجية الصوفية‎) is a general term for cosmological doctrines associated with the mysticism of Sufism. These may differ from place to place, order to order and time to time, but overall show the influence of several different cosmographies:

  • The Quran's testament concerning God and immaterial beings, the soul and the afterlife, the beginning and end of things, the seven heavens etc.
  • The Neoplatonic views cherished by Islamic philosophers like Avicenna and Ibn Arabi.
  • The Hermetic-Ptolemaic spherical geocentric world.
  • The Ishraqi visionary universe as expounded by Suhrawardi Maqtul.
