The Sufis had different beliefs about the universe, God and human from each other because Sufism had extended into different areas and societies. This difference also existed in their worldviews about the unicity in existence. Mevlânâ who was one of the important poets of Sufism interpreted the unicity in existence as the unicity in perception. The major characteristic of his poems is the paradox in them.
