Spiritual journey of a sufi explorers known as an Islamic Mystic, as the main character, Ibn Arabi's vision to reach the spiritual maturity in order to become the perfect human being, and it is the process of spiritual change. His trip was a fully challenge journey and become the fruit of the communities' lips in the whole world where perfection is expected by the traveller, even "didn't grasp" completely because Allah always tries various trials and challenges him ending with solitude.
Through this article, we try to portray the spiritual experience of Ibn Arabi as the experience of a traveller in getting Divine together. Then, a sufi spiritual exercises are very different compared to the non-spiritual because the sufi just focussing his life only for Allah and reject to enjoy the luxury life in the world like other ordinary man though influenced by various temptations. Therefore, the author uses Islamic spritual approach to comprehend and examine the behavior of the traveler as described by Sadiq. In this study the authors found that some of the mystical and spritual experienced by Ibn Arabi during his journey as a traveller to different countries almost unbelievable.
All these mystical experience is Allah's grace given to him because he is the very pious believer to what Allah says and everything is practised in accordance with divine command during his life. Finally, for a sufi to be a perfect man is not only to show the lesson learnt for others but also to experience the journey of spiritual exercises to amend and eliminate the evil behavior, so that the perfection of faith will be achieved as expected and hoped by Allah.
