Ahmadiyya View of Sufi saints & scholars


The works of Sufi saint Ibn Arabi have been regularly quoted and praised by the Ahmadi Muslim leaders. The first Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community stated: 

Our knowledge of the holy Quran and the knowledge of its excellences that we acquired were mainly through the old mystics and sufis like the great master Muḥyiddin Ibn Arabi, but the flow of excellences and beauties of the holy Quran, the secret and the hidden meaning of the verses that come forth from the lips of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, is not seen or heard ever before.

- Hazrat Al-Hajj Hafiz Noor-ud-Din
