Hitzei Yehonatan: Shemot (Rambam)

“But none of them see their prophetic vision except in a dream, in a night vision, or during the day when deep sleep falls upon them”

This is a great article, a commentary on the Torah, that speaks of Maimonides, the most eminent mystic/philosopher of Judaism. Maimonides was a contemporary of Ibn Arabi and also lived and worked in Al-Andalus.There is a great deal in common between the Jewish and the Muslim mystical traditions emerging at this time (12th/13th Century CE) from medieval Al-Andalus (present day Andalucia).
