Ibn Arabi and his repentance
a) Imaam Hafidh ad-Dahabi said regarding Wahdatul Wajoodi Ibn Arabi.
“He commented many things for Tasawwuf of Ahlul wahdah (wahdatul wajood) and The worst of his books is Kitaab al-Fusoos, if this book does not contain Kufr, then Kufr does not exist in the world.”
b) Then he said:
I say : if Muhiyudeein (Ibn Arabi) had returned from his sayings before his death, then he is successful.”
[Seyar Ailam an-Nubala under the biography of Ibn Arabi]
Comment: So for Imam ad-Dahabi Wahdat ul Wajoodis are deviants, rather the book “al-Fusoos” contains kufr. And If by chance Ibn Arabi recanted from his positions like Wahdatul wajood then he succeeded as Allah loves repentance. DEOBANDIS do not have courage to say “Al-Fusoos” includes kufr.
Almost same was said by Imam Ibn Taymiyyah, as he wrote a letter to Nasr al Manjabi who was follower of Ibn Arabi.
[Majmoo Rasaail wal Masaail 1/171] after that he refuted the quotes in Fusus al Hikam and said: Allah Tala knows on which (aqeedah) he died
