Abstract: 
The issue of motion and its existence is one of the important issues in Avicenna’s physics and metaphysics. Avicenna refers to three definitions of motion in his works and based on those definitions conclude that motion is a matter of existence and its opposite of motion, immobility, is a matter of nonexistence.
With regard to motion, Avicenna puts emphasis on the mediating movement which refers to motion as passing from one point into another or from its beginning to its end as a whole. This view of motion which exists in the mind is different from the cutting movement which refers to the unchanging, permanent condition of a moving body. The present article is an attempt to analyze critically Avicenna’s view of motion.
