Abstract

The ultimate end of Muhyi al-Din ibn ‘Arabi’s philosophy consisted of; perfection, foundation of the doctrine of unity of existence. It also encompassed the core of his concept of the Cosmos regarding ‘Reality’ and ‘Truth’, along with his distinctive knowledge about the ‘Reality of Prophet Muhammad ’ al-Haqiqa al-Muhammadiyah . The primary source or cause of creation, Ibn ‘Arabi states that “ the ‘origin of creation’ is the Dust al-habÉ’, the ‘first existent within it’ is the Muhammadan Reality pertaining to the All-Merciful (al-Haqiqa alMuhammadiyya al-RahmÉniyya ), [a Reality] which is not restricted by position, since it is not spatially confined li ‘adam al-tahayyuz, ‘From what did [creation] come into existence?’, From the Known Reality which is described neither by existence nor nonexistence, ‘within what did it come into existence?’, Within the Dust. ‘In what likeness did it come into existence?’ The Form SËra known within God’s Self nafs alhaqq. ‘Why did it come into existence?’ To make manifest the divine realities1 al-haqÉ’iq al-ilÉhiyya”2
