Wilāya (Arabic:الولاية) and its paronyms, literally meaning guardianship, are widely used in the Qur'an to mean administration and authority. Wilaya is sometimes an act by God, which is the same as monotheism and counts as a Divine Attribute. Such a wilaya, which is known as generative guardianship consisting in a causal relationship between the creator and creatures, is exclusively attributed to God. Wilaya is essential to God. Thus, wilaya of some prophets and Infallible Imams is a manifestation of God's wilaya.
