Azim Nanji: Transcendent and unique nature of God

Azim Nanji

This essay explores how writers of the Fatimid period of Isma‘ili history, during the tenth and eleventh centuries, developed an approach that sought to reconcile an understanding of the transcendent and unique nature of God – embodied in the Qur’anic concept of tawhid – with a view of creation as both produced by, and yet distinct from, God.
