Veil in Sufism is defined as anything that makes you estranged from Truth and Reality. With reference to prophetic sentence indicating that there are many veils of Light and obscurity, Sufism classifies veil into two categories: Light and obscurity. They maintain that since human being is a combination of obscurity of body and Light of soul, thus veils such as lusts and impure attributes exemplify body’s veils of obscurity and intellectual intuition, Perplexity etc. could exemplify Soul’s veil of Light. Awakening the self-reproaching soul, a mystic disciple develops a sense of awareness. Afterwards, he first airs his grievances against his ego and self and this is the beginning of the veils of Light. Veil has some stages such as Mohr (seal), Khatme Del (seal of heart), Rayn (veil of disbelief and error over the heart), Sada’, Qasha’, Qayn (thin veil) that are known mostly by the Quran and mystics’ interpretations of Its Verses. At first, a mystic disciple must remove the veils of wealth, dignity, blind following, and sin by overcoming his concupiscent soul until he becomes ready for guidance. Then, becoming familiar with spiritual word and the Expansion of his heart, he experiences some moments with which if he satisfies, he is again veiled. In conclusion, knowing the veils, man nears to knowing himself, especially, knowing the veil of Light that verifies his attribute of being Allah’s vicegerent. And at last, what is available is that there are always some veils between man and God.
