Was Ibn Arabi right in Fusus al-Hikam? Do women most perfectly reflect God? I now understand clearly Muhammad’s love for women. Do other books speak about this?
>For this reason, the Prophet loved women, because of the perfect witness of God in them, for the Real is never witnessed without materials, because in His Essence, He does not need the creatures. If witness of God’s Essence is impossible, and witness of Him occurs only through material, then the witness of the Real in women is the greatest and the most perfect witness. The strongest union is sexual intercourse, which resembles God’s turning to the one whom He created in His image in order to make him his vicegerent, so that He might see Himself in him.
