Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the following text is to examine, compare and contrast the idea of the „Oneness of being“ according to the Christian philosopher Meister Eckhart and the Sufi thinker – Ibn Arabi. Despite the critics addressed to both of them because of their apophatic method of articulation, Eckhart and Ibn Arabi deeply influenced the Christian and the Muslim mysticism.The doctrine of the „Unity of the existence“ is one of the most important problems discussed by these two authors and by the mystic thinkers in general. According to this theory every type of difference in the world is actually an illusion, the differences does not exist and behind them stands the absolute oneness, which envelops all that exists in its ostensible multiplicity. Of course here we are talking about a personal oneness, a holy unity, a unity before which the human being bows down – God. According to the mystics Oneness and God are synonyms.
