Ontology and Topography of Shihab ad-Din as-Suhrawardi's and Muhi ad-din Ibn Arabi's 'Mundus Imaginalis'
Great Muslim mystics – Suhrawardi (1155–1191) and Ibn Arabi (1165–1240) – share the idea of an intermediate realm between the unseen and the world of matter and ascribe to it a major role in their philosophical systems. This paper examines and compares their views on its onthological status and topographical shape based on the descriptions included in their works such as 'Hikmat al-Ishraq' or 'Al-Futuhat al-Makkiyya.'
