Wahdatul-Wajood is Shirk

The creed of Wahdatul Wajood is everything is Allah,literally means the "Unity of Existence''. Which is Polytheism(Shirk) in Islam.

Allah Says,"Say: He is Allah, the One and Only. "Allah, the Eternal, Absolute. "He begets not, nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him." [Al-Qur’an 112:1-4]

Comment:-Let us put the 'Humans' to the test of Surah Ikhlas, the touchstone of theology:

i) The first criterion is "Say, He is Allah, one and only". Is Humans one and only? No! Humans are one among the multitude of ‘Creations of Allah'.

ii)The second criterion is, ‘Allah is absolute and eternal’. We know Humans often suffers from diabetes, asthma, and chronic backache.

iii)The third criterion is ‘He begets not, nor is He begotten’. We know that Humans are born to Adam and Eve.

(iv) The fourth test, which is the most stringent is, "There is none like unto Him". The moment you can imagine or compare ‘Allah’ to anything, then he (the candidate to divinity) is not God. It is not possible to conjure up a mental picture of the One True God. We know that Humans, having two eyes, two ears, a nose, a mouth and a beard.

Thus, the ‘acid test’ cannot be passed by anyone except the One True God.

The following verse of the Glorious Qur’an conveys a similar message:

"No vision can grasp Him but His grasp is over all vision: He is above all comprehension,Yet is acquainted with all things." [Al-Qur’an 6:103]

1-Allah does not become a human being:

"There is nothing whatever like unto Him." [Al-Qur’an 42:11]

Comment:-We humans are like other humans having two eyes, two ears, a nose, a mouth and a white flowing beard

2- Allah does not perform ungodly acts:

The Qur’an says: "Allah is never unjust In the least degree." [Al-Qur’an 4:40]

Comment:-But humans sometimes are unjust.

3-Allah does not make mistakes:

"…my Lord never errs." [Holy Qur’an 20:52]

Comment:-We Humans do make mistakes.

4-Allah does not forget:

"…my Lord never errs, nor forgets." [Al-Qur’an 20:52]

Comment:-Humans do errs and forgets.

5- Allah only performs Godly acts:

The Islamic concept of God is Allah has power over all things. The Qur’an says in several places (Al -Qur’an 2:106; 2:109; 2:284; 3:29; 16:77; and 35:1):

"For verily Allah has power over all things"

Comment:-Humans don't have power over all things.

Further, the Glorious Qur’an says:

"Allah is the doer of all that He intends." [Al-Qur’an 85:16]

Comments:-Humans can't do what they Intend.

6-Their is no deity other than Allah.

O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous Day.

Allah Says,''And when he(Abrahim) saw the sun rising, he said, "This is my lord; this is greater." But when it set, he said, "O my people, indeed I am free from what you associate with Allah .''(AL-Qur'an6:78),

Allah Says,“Truly, whoever associates partner with Allah, Allah will forbid him the Garden, and his abode will be the Fire, and the wrongdoers will have no helpers”[Surah al-Maa`idah (5):72].

7-Whoever Claim divinity is a Mushrik.

Allah Says,''They do blaspheme who say: ‘Allah is Christ the son of Mary.’ But said Christ: ‘O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord’. Whoever joins other gods with Allah – Allah will forbid him the Garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help." [Al-Qur’an 5:72]

Allah Says,"O men! Here is a parable set forth! Listen to it! Those on whom, besides Allah, you call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all met together for the purpose! And if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition!" [Al-Qur’an 22:73]

Allah says,''Or were you witnesses when death approached Jacob, when he said to his sons, "What will you worship after me?" They said, "We will worship your God and the God(i.e Allah) of your fathers, Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac - one God. And we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.''(Al-Quran 2:133)

Narrated Shaddad bin Aus:The Prophet(Peace be upon him) said "The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is: 'Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana `Abduka, wa ana 'ala ahdika wa wa'dika mastata'tu, A`udhu bika min Sharri ma sana'tu, abu'u Laka bini'matika 'alaiya, wa abu'u laka bidhanbi faghfir lee fa innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta(O Allah! You are my Lord. None has the right to be worshipped except You. You created me and I am your servant and I abide by your covenant and promise as best I can. I seek refuge in you from the evil, which I have committed. I acknowledge your favor upon me and I knowledge my sins, so forgive me, for verily none can forgive sin except you)." The Prophet (Peace be upon him) added. "If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise."
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مَعْمَرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَارِثِ، حَدَّثَنَا الْحُسَيْنُ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ بُرَيْدَةَ، عَنْ بُشَيْرِ بْنِ كَعْبٍ الْعَدَوِيِّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي شَدَّادُ بْنُ أَوْسٍ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ سَيِّدُ الاِسْتِغْفَارِ أَنْ تَقُولَ اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي، لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ، أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ، أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَىَّ وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي، فَاغْفِرْ لِي، فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ وَمَنْ قَالَهَا مِنَ النَّهَارِ مُوقِنًا بِهَا، فَمَاتَ مِنْ يَوْمِهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُمْسِيَ، فَهُوَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ، وَمَنْ قَالَهَا مِنَ اللَّيْلِ وَهْوَ مُوقِنٌ بِهَا، فَمَاتَ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُصْبِحَ، فَهْوَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ ‏"‏‏.‏

Comment:-This Hadith clearly states that we are the creation of Allah(subhan Wa'tala) not the creator.

Narrated Abu Huraira:The Prophet(peace be upon him) said,"When Allah created the Creation, He wrote in His Book and He wrote (that) about Himself, and it is placed with Him on the Throne'Verily My Mercy overcomes My Anger.'"

Comment:-This Hadith also proves  humans are creations of Allah(Suban Wa'tala). 

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Moses said, “My Lord, teach me something with which I can remember You and call upon You.” Allah said, “Say: there is no God but Allah.” Moses said, “My Lord, all Your servants say this.” Allah said, “O Moses, if the seven heavens along with their inhabitants besides Me and the seven earths were to be upon a scale, and the statement that there is no God but Allah, they would be outweighed by the saying: there is no God but Allah.”
Grade: Hasan (fair) according to Ibn Hajar
عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ قَالَ مُوسَى يَا رَبِّ عَلِّمْنِي شَيْئًا أَذْكُرُكَ بِهِ وَأَدْعُوكَ بِهِ قَالَ قُلْ يَا مُوسَى لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ. قَالَ يَا رَبِّ كُلُّ عِبَادِكَ يَقُولُ هَذَا. قَالَ: قُلْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ قَالَ إِنَّمَا أُرِيدُ شَيْئًا تَخُصُّنِي بِهِ قَالَ يَا مُوسَى لَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَالأَرَضِينَ السَّبْعِ فِي كِفَّةٍ وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ فِي كِفَّةٍ مَالَتْ بِهِمْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ

Comment:-Even this Hadith proves Allah and his creation are two different entities  

Ubaida ibn As-Samit reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever testifies that there is no God but Allah alone without any partners and that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger, and that Jesus is the servant of Allah, His word which He bestowed upon Mary, and His spirit from Him, and that Paradise is true and Hellfire is true, then he will enter through any of the eight gates of Paradise he wishes.”
عُبَادَةُ بْنُ الصَّامِتِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ قَالَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَأَنَّ عِيسَى عَبْدُ اللَّهِ وَابْنُ أَمَتِهِ وَكَلِمَتُهُ أَلْقَاهَا إِلَى مَرْيَمَ وَرُوحٌ مِنْهُ وَأَنَّ الْجَنَّةَ حَقٌّ وَأَنَّ النَّارَ حَقٌّ أَدْخَلَهُ اللَّهُ مِنْ أَيِّ أَبْوَابِ الْجَنَّةِ الثَّمَانِيَةِ شَاءَ

Comment:Even this Hadith proves that messengers are the creations of Allah.
