Ibn Arabi ..on ONENESS

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.

Have a look at what I've just copied out on ONENESS .. ... But I'm going to put it on here now anyway (24.4'05)

Bismi'llah arRahman arRahim. There is no refuge from Allah but in Him.

After explaining that there is really nothing in existence except Allah..and therefore there is nothing to know Him except Himself by Himself through Himself .... Ibn Arabi says .."And for this the Prophet PBUH said:"Whoso knoweth himself knoweth his Lord." And he said PBUH "I know my Lord by my Lord."The Prophet PBUH points out by that that thou art not thou:thou art He,without thou;not He entering into thee,nor thou entering into Him,nor He proceeding forth from thee,nor thou proceeding forth from Him.And it is not meant by that,that thou art ought that exists or thine attributes ought that exists,but it is meant by it that thou never wast nor will be,wether by thyself or through Him or in Him or along with Him.Thou art neither ceasing to be nor still existing.Thou art He, without one of these limitations.Then if thou know thine existence thus,then thou knowest God;and if not,then not."
