Studying the works of Ibn Arabi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi)

Q: Can a person take benefit from the "Hizb Al-Wiqaya" / "Ad-Dawr Al-A'la" of Shaykh Muḥyiddin Ibn Arabi? (


A: Ibn Arabi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) himself mentioned that it is impermissible for anyone to read our kitaabs until he has fully understood our terminologies and studied the Masaail relating to tasawwuf. If one is not in this level, it is not permissible for him to study the works of Ibn Arabi. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
