“(All) our movement (action) is really a continual profession of faith which bears witness to the Eternal Almighty One.”

—Rumi


“The Shahadah, which epitomizes Islamic doctrine and hence also the doctrine of Sufism, may be said to contain two complementary perspectives, that of transcendence or incomparability (tanzih) and that of immanence or resemblance (tashbih). The first, transcendence, indicates that God is distinct from all beings and that absolutely nothing can compare to Him; the second, immanence, indicates that all beings derive their total reality from God and that therefore in their essential nature they have no reality outside of His Reality.”
