The Language of the Future
Sufi Terminology
by Murshid F.A. Ali ElSenossi


(Thabit). Established or immutably fixed. The archetypes are the immutably fixed entities within Allah's Knowledge.

See also: Fixed Entities Stability
(Ayan al Thabita). The immutable entities or fixed prototypes or established essences or potentialities. These are the infinite and immutable Possibilities which are fixed in the Ipseity. The fixed entities are the images of the Divine Names and Qualities and 'things' of the Ipseity in the Presence of Knowledge, with specific individuation. The term signifies the essential character of every individual existing from eternity in the Divine Knowledge. They are established according to non-existence and they are not qualified by existence.
(Tamkin). Stability or fixity. The station of stability (tamkin) is opposite the station of variegation (talwin). Some consider the station of stability to be superior to variegation, however, the Verifiers and Perfect Knowers of Allah are not limited by either of these stations. In them the two are combined. They are the Perfect Ones who possess stability in variegation in accordance with Allah's never-ending Self-transmutations.
