Sufi cosmology ("Arabic: الكوزمولوجية الصوفية‎‎) is a "Sufi approach to "cosmology which discusses the creation of man and the "universe, which according to mystics are the fundamental grounds upon which "Islamic religious universe is based. According to Sufi cosmology, "God's reason for the creation of this cosmos and humankind is the "manifestation" and "recognition" of Himself as it is stated in "Hadith Qudsi – ""I was a hidden Treasure; I desired to be recognized so I created the creature".[1]

Emanation[edit]

Islamic Sufis describe the Divine Descent and the creation of universe and humankind in the following stages, when Noor-e-Ahadi (Light of One), coming out of His self-isolated oneness, intended to manifest Himself in multiplicity. These stages are also termed as “Tanzalat-e-Satta. Many saints have explained these Tanzalat-e-Satta in their books. "Abu Saeed Mubarak Makhzoomi has discussed them in his Arabic book called Tohfa Mursala.[2] They are also discussed in the exegesis of Fusoos-ul-Hikam, a book by "Ibn Arabi.[3]

The above three levels are the levels of Unity and non-creation. The presence of Hoo in HaHoot, YaHoot and LaHoot indicates Absolute Unity. The creation takes place in the coming levels of Jabrut, Malakut and Nasut.
