The Bezels of Wisdom Quotes by Ibn Arabi

“Know that which is referred to as other-than-Allah, or the
universe, is related to Allah as the shadow is related to the person. The universe is the shadow
of Allah.” – Ibn Arabi

“If it had not been for this love, the universe would not have appeared in its source. Its
movement from non-existence to existence is the movement of the love of the One who
brings into existence for this purpose. The universe also loves to witness itself in existence as
it was witnessed in immutability. Thus by every aspect, the movement from immutable non-
existence to the existence of the sources is a movement of love, both in respect of Allah and
in respect to itself.” – Ibn Arabi

“Creation is intelligible and Allah is felt and witnessed with the believers and the
people of unveiling. Allah is intelligible with other classes, and creation is witnessed.” – Ibn Arab

“The truth of passion is
that passion is the cause of passion.
If there had not been passion in the heart,
passion would not have been worshipped.” – Ibn Arabi

“Allah says, “He has made everything
that is in the heavens and the earth subservient to you. It is all from Him.” (22:65) All that is
in the universe is subject to man. He who knows that from his knowledge is the Perfect Man.
He who is ignorant of that is the Animal Man.” – Ibn Arabi
