The second volume of Selected works of Ibn Arabi contains three selections from al-Futuhat al-Makkiyya: "Theses", "Questions and Answers", "Murid's sermons" . "Theses" is a section of the book's "Introduction" where Ibn Arabi exposes his teachings in consize form of masa'il. "Questions and Answers" contains answers of Ibn Arabi to questions posed by al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi. And "Murid's sermons" is a section of the last chapter of Futuhat where Ibn Arabi addresses those who wish to reach knowledge of the Truth.
