Himmich follows the philosopher’s trip, outlining an array of characters he meets alongside the best way who herald debates of identification and private accountability via their interactions and relationships with Ibn Sab’in. Set opposed to the backdrop of a politically charged thirteenth–century Islamic global, Himmich’s novel is a wealthy combination of truth and mind's eye that re–creates the highbrow debates of the time. because the tradition of prosperity and culture was once giving technique to the chaos created by means of political and social instability, many Arabs, as Ibn Sab’in does within the novel, grew to become inward towards a religious look for that means.
