"The present work is a critical edition of the section on physics of a large commentary on the Talwihat or Intimations, one of Suhrawardi’s so-called “Peripatetic” works written in the conventional style of Ibn Sina. Its metaphysical section was included in Corbin’s edition of Suhrawardi’s works, but, so far as I know, the physical portion has never been published. The present work is probably the most significant published text dealing with the physical doctrines of the early Illuminationist school; it is certainly the largest..."

He writes, "I know of five major medieval biographies of Suhrawardi, all dating from the early and middle parts of the thirteenth century, written by authors who were one to three generations younger than Suhrawardi" :

  • Yāqūt al-Hamawī, Kitāb Irshād al-Arīb ila Ma'rifat al-Adīb al-Ma'ruf bi-Mu'jam al-Udabā' āw Ţabaqat al-Udahā՝ 1st ed.; Cairo: Maţba'a Hindĩya, 1925), 7:269-72.
  • Ibn Abī Uşaybi'a, 'Uyūn al-Anbā՝ fî Ṭabaqāt al-Atibbā', ed. A. Müller (Königsberg, 1884), 1:168-71; the edition by N. Rida (Beirut, 1968), 641-646 differs slightly from Müller's.
  • Ibn Fadl Allah al-'Umarī, Masālik al-AbsārfīMamālik al-Amsār, ed. Fuat Sezgin (Publications of the Institute for Arabic-Islamic Science, Ser. C, 46; Frankfurt am Main: Institute for the History of Arabic-Islamic Science, 1988), 9:86-93, which is based largely but not entirely on Ibn Abī Uşaybi'a.
  • Ibn Khallikān, Wafāyāt al-A'yān wa-Anbā՝ Abnā' al-Zamān, ēd. Iḥsān 'Abbās (Beirut: Dar al-Thaqafa, 1968), 6:268-74; trans. W. M. de Slane, Ibn Khallikan՝ s Biographical Dictionary (Oriental Translation Fund 59; Paris, 1843-71).
  • Shahrazūrī, Nuzhat al-Arwāḥ, ed. Ahmad, 2:119-43;

Shahrazūrī, Nuzhat al-Arwāḥ, ed. Abu Rayyān, 600-22.

Ahmed, Sh Nuzhat al-Arwāḥ; and Abu Rayyan, ed., Sh Nuzhat al-Arwāḥ, which appears to be superior to the Ahmed edition, of which Abu Rayyan was seemingly unaware. Toward the end of this project another edition came to my attention: ed. 'Abd al-Karîm Abu Shuwayrib (1st ed.; [Tripoli, Libya?]: Jam'Iyat al-Da'wa al-Islamlya al-'Alamlya, 1988). It was done on (lu-basis of two Islanbul MSS, but it is sharply criticized by Abu Rayyan, 44-50. The seventeenth-century Persian translation of Nuzhat al-Arwah by Maqsud-'Ali Tabriz! has recently been published by M. T. Danish-Pa/.huh and M. S. Mawla'i (Tehran, 1986) and differs (considerably at times) from the Arabic text. Part of tin-notice on Suhrawardi in this text has been translated in MVI. I 4. Thackslon's translation is based on the partial edition of S. H Nasr in .SMj 3:13-30. This edition includes the Arabic text as well as the Persian translation of Tabrizī. I have cited both the Ahmed and the Abu Rayyan editions and have preferred the readings of Abu Rayyan unless otherwise noted. I have not used the Tabrizī Persian translation. The Nuzhat is based on earlier works, al-Mubashshir b. Fātik's Mukhtār al-Hikam (Los bocados de oro, ed. 'Abd al-Rahmān. Badawĩ [Madrid, 1377/1958]) being the most important but not the only source." (Walbridge, 2000:232-3).
"A slightly later account, significant for its sympathy to Suhrawardi, is al-Dhahabî, al-'lbar fī Khabar Man Ghabar, ed. Salāh al-Dîn al-Munajjid (al-Turāth al-'Arabî 10; Kuwait: Wizarat al-Irshād wa'l-Anba', 1963), 4:263-64. It is based on Ibn Khallikān.
A source for several of the accounts is Ibn Shaddād, the biographer of Saladin and advisor to al-Malik al-Zāhir, who was actually involved in Suhrawardl's condemnation; see Bahā al-Dīn Ibn Shaddād, Sirat Salāh al-Dîn: al-Sīrat al-Yūsufìya, ed. Jamāl ai-Din al-Shayyal (1st ed.; Cairo: al-Khānjī, 1962), 10; trans. The Life of Salah ud Din Ayyubi (reprint Rawalpindi: Army Book Club, 1983), 10-11.
        A later account, citing skeptical Sufis, is 'Abd al-Rahmān Jāmī, Nafahāt al-Uns, ed. M. 'Abuli (Tehran: lllilā'āt, 1375/1996), 584-86.
