Ibn Arabi and Ertugrul

Shaykh Muhiuddin Ibn Arabi  (R) (1165 – 1240) was born in Spain and was a poet, philosopher and scholar. He is also well known as AL Shaykh Al Akbar or The Greatest Teacher, in the field of Islamic Spirituality. 

Ertugrul Ghazi (death: c. 1280) started his life as the son of a tribal leader of  a small Turkish tribe and later became father of Osman 1 – the founder of Ottoman Empire.  The foundation of the empire was set by Ertugrul Ghazi,  in Anatolia (Asia Minor) that grew to be one of the most powerful states in the world during the 15th and 16th centuries. The Ottoman period spanned more than 600 years and came to an end only in 1922, when it was replaced by the Turkish Republic and various successor states in south-eastern Europe and the Middle East.
