In the paper, it has been intended to study Stace`s view on unity of existence as understood in Islamic mysticism. Therefore, Muslim mystics` view on the unity of existence has been explained first and then, Stace`s view in the field has been mentioned and finally a comparison has been made between the two sides. Contrary to Stace, that views Muslim mystics as being dualist with existential monistic tendency and more or less monist, they should surely be known as existential monist. And it is just the same point that Stace says in his mystical special speech, shathiyah, of unity of existence. God`s being and, at the same time, not being just the same as the world expressed by Stace may be taken to mean the same as Muslim mystics` view on unity in multiplicity and multiplicity in unity. The difference of the views lies only in the manner of speech and depth of perception and, in conclusion, in explaining unity and multiplicity, the point meant incorrectly by Stace and viewed by him as contradictory and, at the same time, justifiable. Stace knows mysticism beyond the field of logic and, therefore, far from mind and reason. While Muslim mystics view existential monism as logical and reasonable.
