From His Sayings
One time he was speaking about the state of Unique Oneness (wahdaniyya):
"It means the impossibility of the existence of multiplicity,
and it is of three categories:
- The unique Oneness of the Essence. This means that His Essence is
not compounded or combined from two or more parts, and there is nothing

"When you meet a darwish, a faqir, a seeker in the way of God ,
begin with him with sincerity and loyalty and with lenience. Don't begin
with him with knowledge. Because knowledge might make him wild at the
beginning, but leniency might bring him quickly to you."
