"The god you worship is under my feet!

"
Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Muhammad ibn alArabi, Abu Bakr Muhyi al-Din al-Hatimi al-Tai al-Andalusi al-Mursi al-Dimashqi, known as

Ibn Arabi
(560A.H - 638A.H)
(July 28, 1165 CE - November 10, 1240 CE)

A warning ! by Ibn `Arabi Ibn Arabi stated:


It is not permissible for those that do not understand our terminologies to study our books (Al-Fatw al-Hadthiyya, pg 211, AlFikr) Complex books: Those that discuss the concepts of Tasawwuf and other intricate issues. These books should not be studied alone. The tutelage and guidance of a competent Scholar should be sought. Sheikh Alt Arabi of Spain had no children. At the instance of a Majzoob, he approached Hazrat Ghos ul Azam (RA) for his blessings and prayers for a son. Hazrat said I have one more son yet unborn in my destiny. I give it to you. Rub your back against mine and name him when born Mohammad Mohiyuddin (The Reviver of Religion). He would rise up to be a Qutub of his time. The child was eventually born and was named accordingly. He became a great philosopher and attained high spiritual advancement. He gained the title of Sheikh al Akbar and is commonly known as Ibn-al-Arabi.

"The god you worship is under my feet!"


His Doctrine (Aqda)
His greatest and best-known work is his last, al-Futuhat al-Makkiyya (The Meccan Conquests) which begins with a statement of doctrine translated in the present volume about which al-Safadi said: I saw that from beginning to end it consists in the doctrine of Abu alHasan al-Ashari without any difference whatsoever.

[In al-Suyuti, Tanbih al-Ghabi (p. 71).]

One day in Damascus he saw an imam-a lover of money, not of Allah-leading a whole congregation of people who also had the love of money in their hearts.
He called to them from the door, saying,

"I am treading upon the god you worship; he is under my feet!"


The congregation left their prayer to curse him and beat him. Some say he died from the wounds he received on this occasion.?
The scholars eventually had their revenge.

His grave later became the site of a garbage dump. So it remained until the Ottoman Sultan, Selim I, the Resolute, took the city of Damascus. Sultan Selim believed that Ibn `Arabi had predicted his conquest of the Near East and Egypt in an essay called "Shajarat al nu `maniyyahfi dawlat al-uth maniyyah," which described the Ottoman state long before it existed. In that essay it was also written, "Idha dakhalassinufish-shin, yash'aru qabra Muhyiddin" ("When the letter `S' enters the letter `Sh,' Muhyiddin's tomb will be discovered.")

"The god you worship is under my feet!"


The learned men in the Ottoman court interpreted the letter "S" as standing for Selim and the letter "Sh" as the city of Sham, or Damascus. They informed the Sultan that he would discover the saint's tomb when he conquered Damascus. Indeed, when Selim entered Damascus, the first thing he did was to search. He found the lost grave covered with garbage. The great warrior wept and ordered a tomb and mosque built on the site. Then he commissioned Shaikh Makki, one of the greatest theologians of the time, to write a book on Ibn `Arabi's life and works. Shaikh Makki wrote al-Janib al-gharbifi mushkilat Ibn al `Arabi, attempting to clarify some of the misunderstandings about Ibn `Arabi's thoughts in a language even narrow-minded people would understand. Other scholars of the time were encouraged by the sultan to write forty commentaries on the Fusus al-Hikam. Sultan Selim also visited the mosque where the was buried in the quarter of attack that may have caused the saint's death had occurred. He found the spot where the Shaikh had said,

"The god you worship is under my feet!"


and had it excavated.

A treasure of gold coins was discovered.

"The god you worship is under my feet!"


May Allah have mercy on the soul of Muhyiddin Ibn `Arabi, and may He be pleased with him and bestow peace upon his soul. May the Creator of All, Master of the universes seen and unseen, known and unknown, Allah-free of all fault, heedlessness, defect and deficiency, pure and most holy, knower and container of all things, the Lord who preserves us from all disasters and calamities-bestow His blessings and grace upon our Master Muhammad, upon his family and companions."

"The god you worship is under my feet!"

Narrated Aisha: Allah's Apostle recited the Verse: "It is He Who sent down upon you the Book, in which some verses have clear meaning, they are the substance of the Book, and others are those, in the meaning of which there is doubt. Those in whose hearts there is perversity pursue doubtful one desiring deviation and searching their own viewpoint of it, and its right interpretation is known to Allah alone. And those of firm knowledge say, 'We believed in it, all is from our Lord and none accept admonition save men of understanding". (3.7) Then Allah's Apostle said, "If you see those who follow thereof that is not entirely clear, then they are those whom Allah has named [as having deviation (from the Truth)] 'SO BEWARE OF THEM'. [Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 70]

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah's mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims. And he who deviates from this largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell."[Tirmidhi]

...The Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) remarked: "Leave him, as his slaying will serve no good purpose, as he is not the only individual but there are a host of others like him and if you compare their prayers and fasting to that of yours, you yourself will feel ashamed.These are the people who will recite the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats, with all these apparent virtues they will leave the fold of Deen just like the arrow leaves the bow." [Miskhat Shareef, PP. 535 ] - [Saheeh al-Bukhari, Vol:4, H558,807,808 & Vol:6, H577,578 & Vol:9, H527]

When Abu Umama saw the heads of the rebels hoisted on poles in Damascus he wept and said: "The dogs of the people of the Fire." Then he was asked: "Is this from you or from the Messenger of Allah"? He said: "From the Messenger of Allah, and I have heard him say it not once (but more), nor twice (but more), nor three times (but more)" until he reached seven times. Then he was asked about his weeping and he said: "Out of compassion for them. They used to be Muslim and they became kafir." [Narrated by Tirmidhi (hasan), Ibn Majah, and Ahmad through several chains. [Sahih AtTirmithi, Ibn Majah, Ahmad bin Hanbal]

Hazrat Abu Huzaifa(Radiallahu Anhu) narrates a Hadith concerning the leaders of the mischief makers: "I swear by Allah that the Holy Prophet (Sallalaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has not left out a single leader of Fitna from this day to the Day of Qiyamah. Their followers would number 300 or more and further gave their names and that of their tribe." [Abu Dawood]
