Wahdat i Wujud: Sufi Quote by Shaykh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani
“The Saints may speak about Wahdat i Wujud. We Naqshbandi’s also have the Zikr , La Mowjooda Illallah, which means that there is no existence but Allah. Only Allah Almighty was in existence and even now also there is none else in existence but Him.
Every learned person knows that this World came into existence for some reason and also for some reason it will disappear and vanish. This is our belief. At one time there was nothing in existence and there will come a time when once again there will be nothing in existence.
Mumkin ul Wujud means the possibility for reasons in existence. What is the reason for this Universe to appear in existence? It is only Iradathullah.
Inna Ma Amruhu Iza Aradha Shayyan Yakoolulahu Kunfayakoon [Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, “Be!” – and it is!].
This is from Surah Yaseen.
Above all reason the only reason is His Will. He just said, “BE” and the Universe came into existence.
Everything in existence does not have any real existence. “Wahdat i Wujud”, means that only Allah Almighty is “Existence”.
