Abū ʿAbd Allāh Muḥammad ibn ʿAlī ibn Muḥammad ibn al-ʿArabī al-Ḥātimī aṭ-Ṭāʾī (Arabic: أبو عبد الله محمد بن علي بن محمد بن العربي الحاتمي الطائي) is one of the greatest scholars, philosophors and mystics of Muslim History. He is considered an umatched spiritual scholar of the last millenium. He is often regarded as "Sheikh al-Akbar (the greatest sheikh)".


Sheikh's views are generally agreed by the Muslims.

If the believer understood the meaning of the saying 'the colour of the water is the colour of the receptacle', he would admit the validity of all beliefs and he would recognise God in every form and every object of faith.
