He said to me: Making manifest is My veil, and making manifest has nonmanifest domains that are My veil. The nonmanifest domains have degrees that are My veil. The degrees have ends that are My veil. The ends have furthest limits that are My veil. The furthest limits have attainments that are My veil. The attainments have knowledges that are My veil. The knowledges have sorts that are My veil. The sorts have judgments that are My veil. The judgments have verdicts that are My veil. The verdicts have overturners that are My veil. The overturners have successors that are My veil. Behind the successors is My command, which is My veil.
He said to me: My veils that can be communicated are but a speck of My veils that cannot be communicated.
'The Unveiling of Love: Sufism and the Remembrance of God'
by Muzaffer Ozak (Author)
The Unveiling of Love is the inspired work of an enlightened master of the Sufi Way. Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak was the renowned spiritual leader of the Halveti-Jerrahi Order of Dervishes in Istanbul and in the U.S., as well as other countries in the West.
For the dervish, passionate and ecstatic adoration for the Divine Beloved illuminates both the heart and the mind. With the help of poems, traditional teaching stories and brief passages from the Koran, Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak unveils the meaning of spiritual affection and explores the relationsilip of lover and beloved.
Expressly written for a Western audience, The Unveiling of Love presents valuable guidance for those with long experience in Islam and for those who are encountering Sufism and the meaning of spiritual love for the first time.
The author's preface in this new edition includes material never previously available in English. In it, Sheikh Muzaffer recounts some of his enraptured first encounters with American seekers.
