Abenarabi Or Ibn Arabí

This is the avenue Abenarabi. It's just an excuse to talk about Abenarabi or Ibn Arabi:
"The streets of Murcia viewed born to one of the most important Muslim mystics, Abenarabi, the great thinker and poet of Al-Andalus.
The twelfth and thirteenth centuries were shaken politically, with the reconquista and the crusades. Is the time of Al-Andalus and the empire of the Almohades, constituting one of its greatest regarding our character, a thinker who in works such as The Names of God laid the foundations for a new worldview rooted in the individual approach to divinity through study and prayer, a mystical, or search for union with God, which centuries later would drink San Juan de la Cruz and Santa Teresa de Jesus.
