One of the issues that absorbs human's attention to itself in this century much more than at any time before , is "the meaning of life" which includes the reason of life and choosing its quality. This research, attempts to analyze Ibn Arabi’s thinking manner about this issue, based on asked questions in Philosophy by paying attention to some subjects like the status of human in the world, the elements which give meaning to life, God and the meaning that He gives to life, human's bliss and the after-death-life and its role to give meaning to life . Ibn Arabi has a supernatural look to the meaning of life and in his point of view human's existence has an intrinsic value and God creates human body for being, knowing and love. God himself is necessary and sufficient for a significant existence as His love gives a desirable goal to human and world, and the meaning of life comes from uniting with Him; something not possible in the physical world. In Ibn Arabi’s point of view, not only life is intrinsically meaningful (because it is worth living and has a worthy and satisfactory end), but also we can make our lives more meaningful, too .
