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.

As the shadow is completely dependent on origin and without it is non-existent; in the same way world and creation altogether are but shadows of manifested reality. However, His having the only true existence does NOT imply idea of incarnation or dwelling in creation as some people may conclude from the doctrine of Oneness of Being (Wahdatu-l-Wujud).  His reality or Essence (Dhat) is beyond time, space or any conditions whatsoever. He is neither in world nor absent from it.

In His proximity, He is the near, in His Loftiness, the Observer.  Power, Splendor, Grandeur and Magnificence are His.. whose Essence is great beyond any resemblance to other essences. Glory be to Allah, the Creator and Lord of Cosmos, Mighty in His Magnificence, Grand in His Splendor.

                                  ''There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing.''   (Shura- 42:11)
