ABSTRACT
Tawhid is the belief in uniqueness of God and unity of the existentia necessaria. The present paper attempts to have a discussion from the theoretical and practical mysticism and is divided by two main parts. The first part is devoted to the types and levels of Tawhid in Lady Amin's discourse and the relation between true and real unity and the existentia necessaria. The role of Tawhid in practical mysticism and levels of the mystic journey are discussed in the second part. In this part, Lady Amin's view toward levels of the mystic journey is explained and then, eight stages of the quadruple journeys are mentioned. In Lady Amin's point of view, these stages, the number of which are not agreed on, begin with the quest and ends in Tawhid. Thus, Tawhid of all three types of divine essence, divine actions and divine attributes becomes the final destination of the first journey of the wayfarer.
