  1. AoA.. thankyou dear amirhosein_88, was really a good read. however did you notice the part where Alama Tabatabai of tafseer al-mizan was quoted to have said that ibn Arabi was a non-believer yet in the book "Light within me" co authored by Ayatullah mutahhari, Alama Tabatabai and Ayatullah syed Khomeini,, in it ibn Arabi is recorded as quote: 'certainly the greatest mystic of islam. No one else hasbeen able to reach this level, neither before or after him. Thus he is known as the sobriquet 'al-Shaykh al-akbar (the greatest saint)" I would say as Shakespeare said "something is rotten
  2. AoA, my questions are answered by more questions !! Great.. But there were a few points you made that were nice, JazakAllah . .. the concept(s) of ibn Arabi & basic knowhow of his books 'Fusūs al-Hikam' & 'al-Futuhat al-makkiyya' (which I'm reading now) has to be known to get the context, depth & seriousness of my questions.. p.s No offense but KIDS UNDER 35 CAN CONVENIENTLY NOT ATTEMPT ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS COZ ITS BEYOND THEM PHYSIOLOGICALLY .
  3. Can't get over that muhyu din ibn Arabi is considered as the greatest Arif although he did not believe or recognize the masoom Imam (a) of his time, however still, the great Alama M. Hussain Tabatabai & A. Mutahirri many others claimants of practicing Irfan, believe ibn Arabi to be the greatest Aarif (sufi/saint) to have probably lived. .... Question: 1) why are they taking their tauheed from Ibn Al-arabi? WHY IS THIS NOT PARADOXICAL?? 2) is ibn Arabi's way 'one' of the 'ways' to the straight path (sirat almustakem), as in tafseer al mezan explanation of different
  4. Isn't God swt the 'ultimate ego'? Isn't He swt the only One worthy of Pride & Ego? Isn't the misplaced 'human ego' not the 'curtain' between man and his Lord??
  5. JazakAllah, thank you Beardedbaker for putting this into my head.. looked into it. The Great Aarif/saint is 'Muhyi u-Din Muhammad b. Ali b. Muhammad al-Arabi al-Tai al-Hatim known as Ibn Arabi from Andalusia (reference for example: 'Quest for the Red Sulphur' The life of Ibn Arabi by Claude Addas)... now my research till now on this tells that this Ibn Arabi respected the 12 imams a.s greatly, although he was not a declared shia i think, & this statement about imam Hussain is attributed to him in one of Ibn khaldun in his muqaddima fil-tarikh, but then apparently retracted it or somet
  6. There's literature available on it online too & could be referred but it's not, on the face of it, disputed that he said it ..now personally for me it's irrelevant whatever the context was, he believed in this for my Imam a.s & however still, the dazzling hights of ibn Arabi's experiences & his achievements are indescribably astonishing, & then his visions are totally in accordance with his beliefs!! My mental predicament is a one liner .. WHY IS THIS NOT PARADOXICAL??
  7. Sure please, he says “Hussein was killed with sword of his Grandfather”
  8. Can't get over ibn Arabi's statement regarding Imam Hussain a.s vis-a-vis yazid (lanati), however still, the great Alama M. Hussain Tabatabai & others believe ibn Arabi to be the greatest Aarif (sufi/saint) to have probably lived .... Question: WHY IS THIS NOT PARADOXICAL?? p.s. is ibn Arabi's way 'one' of the 'ways' to the straight path (sirat almustakem), as in tafseer al mezan explaination of different & variating paths that ultimately lead to the one 'straight path'? Any real explaination outthere for this paradox?
