A Historical Study of the Hierarchy of the Seeker's relation to Divine Names in Ibn Arabi School

The great emphasis of religious teachings on the name of the Divine beautiful names caused the Muslim mystics to speak first of all about the spiritual benefits of the seekers of Divine names. This idea has gradually evolved and consolidated, and manifested itself in the mystic language, in the form of the three kinds of relation of "belonging", "creation" and "realization" to Divine names. Usually, "belonging" is considered the first rank of the conjunction with Divine Names, and "creation" is the intermediate rank and the "realization" is the final rank. Ibn Arabi in his works has tried to explain various aspects of this issue and his followers have paid special attention to this issue and promoted this idea. This study explores the historical roots of this topic by examining the mystics' view of the triangle of 'belonging', ‘creation’ and 'realization' to Divine Names, and follows its evolution in Ibn Arabi's school in order to unveil the ambiguities of the problem and open a window into the important topic of Divine Names in the field of Islamic mysticism.
