It is He who is revealed in every face, sought in every sign, gazed upon by every eye, worshipped in every object of worship, and pursued in the unseen and the visible. Not a single one of His creatures can fail to find Him in its primordial and original nature.

Ibn 'Arabi, Futûhât al-Makkiyya

Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi

Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage, Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi is one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Ibn 'Arabi was born in Murcia, Al-Andalus, in 1165 and his writings had an immense impact throughout the Islamic world and beyond. The universal ideas underlying his thought are of immediate relevance today.

This web site passes on news and announcements of events, and provides information about publications in this field. It has over 150 translations and articles republished from the Society's Journal and other sources.


The Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society was founded in 1977 to promote a greater understanding of the work of Ibn 'Arabi and his followers. It is an international association with its headquarters in Oxford England and a branch in Berkeley California. It is funded by the subscriptions of its members. See membership options for the UK/Rest of world and North America.
