  22. As-Salaam alaikum, A traditional Sufi saying states that 'No one knows Allah but Allah'. Quite true! But in the hearts of His lovers, Allah Ta'ala reveals His Divine mysteries... reveals marvels about His Names and Attributes. An undisputed inner truth is that Allah is One and Only.... meaning that only He has real existence (Wujud) and that all other things exist only through His existence and life.
