Summary/Abstract: In this article, Abū Bakr Ibn al-’Arabī's understanding of abrogation (naskh) and the reflections of this are discussed. Although it is not possible to reach a final point on the subject of naskh which has been a subject of debate since the early times and is still under discussion, it might provide a basis for further studies in the subject of abrogation to analyze the changes occurred in the meaning and content of abrogation throughout history. In this study, we dealt with Ibn Arabi’s views on abrogation and explained some basic concepts of this issue as well as examined controversial issues in this regard. We also discussed the conditions of abrogation and the relation between abrogater and abrogated verses according to Ibn al-’Arabī and compared his views to the views of other jurists and exegetes. In conclusion, we presented some information on the abrogated verses from the perspective of Ibn al-’Arabī.
