The Druze belive that monotheism dates back to ancient times. They emphasize Tawheed or God’s absolute Unity or Oneness meaning, there is no separation between God and man, or between God and any other aspect of Existence. God is exalted above and beyond traits, names, languages and everything else. God is perceived as the Lahūt [the divine] who manifests His Light in the Station (Maqaam) of the Nasut [material realm] without the Nasut becoming Lahūt. One of the central principles of the Druze faith is the concept of cycles (adwar). Each soul has the opportunity to progress in successive incarnation cycles until it reaches a state of high purity and wisdonm and can merge with its spiritual source.
