The name mahiyya comes from the Arabic má hiyya: the question “what is it?” where “it” is anything in the universe, visible and invisible. Also it is the question regarding everything else than God – Allah.

A quote:

”A thing’s “reality” (haqîqa), [is] its “whatness” or “quiddity” (mâhiyya). This is determined not by our definitions, but by God’s knowledge, because He knows the thing always and forever, whether or not it exists in the cosmos.”
