27b The Ultimate Goal: The Perfect Human Being
The ultimate goal is to achieve the status of the perfect human being (al-insân al-kâmil), who stands in what Ibn al-ʿArabī often calls ‘the Muhammadan Station.’
This station embraces every possible human perfection, not least the stations achieved by the greatest exemplars of human possibility, that is, the 124,000 prophets, particularly Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, whom Ibn al-ʿArabī seems to discuss more than any of the others.
As for Muhammad ﷺ, given that he reached every possible human perfection, his station encompassed all the perfections of all the prophets. Hence the Muhammadan Station is the fullest possible manifestation of divine and human perfection in the universe.
