Sharḥ Ḥikmat al-Ishrāq, written in the late 13th century by the Kurdish Iranian physician and scholar Shams al-Dīn Muḥammad Shahrazūrī, is the first and most extensive commentary (sharḥ) on Shihāb al-Dīn Suhrawardī’s (d. 1191) Philosophy of Illumination. This work—plus many other manuscripts that are yet to be examined and published—disproves the common fallacy that Islamic philosophy ended in the 12th century. This edition by Hossein Ziai Torbati, in Arabic with an introduction in English, helps fill the void in our understanding of the continuity of Islamic philosophy, notably through the Illuminationist school of thought in Iran.
