Wahdatul Wujood


As salaam alaykum,

I would like to ask what type of wahdatul wujood does the Naqshbandiyya order endorse, does it believe in wahdatul wujood wa al mawjood, or does it believe in wahdatul wujood wa tashkeek al mawjood?

Also, I would like to know what the order’s position is on the teachings of Mulla Sadra in this regard, and whether or not he attained any maqamaat during his life…

How about some ahadith books like Usool-al Kafi and Biharul Anwaar, etc. that are used as a source for extracting fiqhi rulings and aqa’id amongst the Shi’a, but contain a lot of ahadith of the Ahlul bait?

Thanks for your reply, insha Allah.

Fi aman illah.


`Alaykum Salam,

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (Allah bless his secret) said when the drop disappears into the ocean it becomes one with it, and it is agreed upon among all the People of Qubla that true, underived existence belongs to Allah alone.

As for Mulla Sadra he reminded people of Allah Most High and His Names and Attributes and loftiness so that is enough wilaya, and Allah knows best about the ranks of His servants.

As for ahadith on Ahl al-Bayt one of the best I have read is Hafiz al-Jazari’s book on Manaqib Amir al-Mu’minin Sayyidina ‘Ali radya Allahu’anh where he narrated everything with well-considered chains of transmission. See also Imam al-Suyuti’s Ihya’ al-Mayt in that regard as well as the compilations of al-Haytami, al-Kattani and others.
