Wahdat al-Wujud

    Wahdat al-Wujud

    The unity of Being. Doctrine formulated by the school of Ibn al-Arabi , which postulates that God and His creation are one, since all that is created preexisted in God's knowledge and will return to it, making mystical union with God possible. This was a problematic doctrine for legalist interpreters of Islam such as the Wahhabis, who held to a strict interpretation of tawhid that did not permit anyone or anything to be associated or in union with God.
