Insan al-Kamil الإنسان الكاملBy: Jili, Abdulkarim عبدالكريم الجيلي
"'al-Insan al-Kamil' is a term used as an honorific title to describe the prophet Muhammad. The phrase means "the person who has reached perfection, literally "the perfect person" It is an important concept in Islamic culture of the prototype human being, pure consciousness, one's true identity, to be contrasted with the material human who is bound by one's senses and materialism. The term was originally used by Sunni Sufis and is still used by them, however it is also used by Alawis and Alevis. This idea is based upon a hadith, which was used by Ibn Arabi, that states about Prophet Muhammad, 'I was a prophet when Adam was between water and clay'." (Wikipedia)
