ONTOLGY of HINDU and MUSLIM MISTICS Both of mystical system of Hindu and Islam see the whole existence as a Sole Reality, the One without a second, by different words. Hindu mystic uses the word advaita(non-dualism), and Muslim mystic uses the word wadat al-wujūd(unity of Being). For both Indian and Islamic mysticism the Ultimate Reality is essentially transcendent, while this transcendence is not consid ered in the Western doctrine of pantheism. Similarly both in Indian and Islamic doctrines the world is an aspect of the Absolute Truth, and it has not any independence from itself. There is no doubt that advaita vedānta is one of the oldest pantheistic thought of the world, which dates as far back as 1000 B.C. But in spite of doubt by some orientalists about the independence of doctrine of wadat al-wujūd, it has originated from Islamic sources. One of the reasons of its independence is its inclusive characteristics. If we study this subject in depth, we will find that Islamic doctrine of unity of being (wadat al-wujūd) is different from the unity upheld by other systems.
