According to his theory of the unity of the existence, Ibn¾ e Arabi has criticized the Sufi's definition of repentance. For him every act of each existence ¾ although regarded as an error¾is God's act. Attributing the acts to every one other than God is an error and we must repent of it. Since God is the true agent, repentance in its ordinary sense is a hidden polytheism; for it requires that we presuppose the existence of the sin¾i.e. act of man¾and it requires in turn thee stablishment of existence for man in opposition to the existence of God. So the true repentance is avoiding from independence in existence and in act. The true repentant is the man who grasps the existential return of the world to God, ever though such a person is active against God's commends. Of God's Names, one is the Acceptor of repentance; and since every name of God has an external manifestation, and God has these Names in this and other world, the man who knows God (i.e. the mystic) is a repentant for ever.
