Hijab al Sirr as Sirr
Veil of the Hidden Secret

(Hijab al Sirr as Sirr). The veil of the Hidden Secret is the veil of greatness and majesty. This is called the Station of the unveiling of the attributes. This is still not the end of the road. One must continue on to the unveiling of the Essence and the Realities of Light.

(Haqiqat al Haqa'iq).The Truth of truths. The Reality of realities. Haqiqat al haqa'iq is the intangible isthmus between the Divine Being and the cosmos. Ultimately the Haqiqat al Haqa'iq is the Absolute, but not in its primordial absoluteness. It is the very first descent in which the Absolute manifests Itself and is also called The Reality of Muhammad (al Haqiqat al Muhammadiyyah). Conceptualisation and discussion of the Reality of Realities is exclusive to the Sufis. It is also called the Universal Reality, (Al Haqiqat al Kulliyya).
(Sirr al sirr). The Mystery within the Mystery. The Breath within the Breath. This is the greatest subtlety through which Allah isolates Himself from His slave.
