The Ode of the Greatest Master

Something I take back from me from Syria. Sheikh al-Akbar or “The Greatest Master” Ibn al-’Arabi - who’s grave to this day is visited in Damascus, Syria - is according to many the greatest mystic, philosopher, and theologian in Islamic history, at least after Imam Abul Hamid al-Ghazali.

Unfortunately, leftist “progressivism” and post-modernity has borne its ugly head in the Islamic world as well as the Christian West and Ibn al-’Arabi has been transformed (not unlike many Western figures - most notably Plato and Aristotle who have been bastardized in academia) into a liberal unitarian universalist pantheist philosopher.
