Mubahala between Ibn Arabi and Hafiz Ibn Hajar

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

Mubahala literally means “mutual prayer” but in the terminology of Islamic Shariah it refers to a particular form of resolving religious disputes. When the argumentation from both sides fail to resolve a religious issue, the parties jointly pray to Allah to cast His curse on whichever of the two parties is false. (Maariful Quran p.91 v.2)

I have not come across any texts where there was a mubahala between Ibn Arabi and Hafiz Ibn Hajar.  Furthermore it is not possible for Ibn Arabi and Hafiz Ibn Hajar to do mubahala.  This is because Ibn Arabi was before Shaikul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (RA) and Hafiz Ibn Hajar was after Shaikul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (RA).
