We question often, what is god? where is god? How can we see him? How can we contact him? And after all these question, we question ourselves that where are the answers of our questions? Isn’t it funny to roam around this silly questions where answers lies with in ourselves only. Yet if you are not able to find themselve, then poetry of mystic, philosopher, sage, Muhammad ‘Ali Ibn ‘Arabi can help you. He is one of the world’s great spiritual teachers. Known as Muhyiddin (the Revivifier of Religion) and the Shaykh al-Akbar (the Greatest Master), he was born in 1165 AD into the Moorish culture of Andalusian Spain.He travelled extensively in the Islamic world and died in Damascus in 1240 AD.
He wrote over 350 works. In his Diwân and Tarjumân al-Ashwâq he also wrote some of the finest poetry in the Arabic language. Ibn ‘Arabi shows how Man, in perfection, is the complete image of this reality and how those who truly know their essential self, know God.
