A description of the experience
from ABD AL-RAHMAN JAMI: “NAQSHBANDI SUFI, PERSIAN POET - Farah Fatima Golparvaran Shadchehr, M.A.2008
Amir Sayyid Ahmad Bab al-Abvabi, known as Lala, (d.1506) was from Darband, Shirvan, in the western part of Iran. It was Lala's reputation of being an expert in understanding Ibn 'Arabi's thought, that prompted Jami to establish a connection with him.
Even Lala reported struggling with interpreting Ibn ‘Arabi’s work. He was quoted as saying,
“I was in pain and cried many nights while studying Fusus,because I could not understand some points, then Ibn ‘Arabi would appear and solve the problems.”
