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


(Kan). To 'be' or that which 'is'. Kan derives from 'existence' (kawn) which is identical with 'being' (wujud). This is clearly stated in the words of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace), "Allah is (kan), and nothing is with Him" (Allah is Existent, and nothing is with Allah in Allah's Being).

Wujud - see 'Being'. Kawn - see 'Engendered existence'.
(Ahl al Kashf wal Wujud). These are the knowers. They have passed beyond the veils which stand between themselves and their Lord and they stand perpetually in His Presence.
