Dance Of The Seven Veils

Now that I have posted the closest thing I ever got to a love letter, this post should serve as the closest I'll get to dancing.

7 Al-A'raf (The Heights)
7:46 وَبَيْنَهُمَا حِجَابٌ وَعَلَى الأَعْرَافِ رِجَالٌ يَعْرِفُونَ كُلاًّ بِسِيمَاهُمْ
وَنَادَوْاْ أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ أَن سَلاَمٌ عَلَيْكُمْ لَمْ يَدْخُلُوهَا وَهُمْ يَطْمَعُونَ

7:46 Between them shall be a veil, and on the heights will be men who would know every one in particular (ie, by their name or by their mark): they will call out to the Companions of the Garden, 'Peace!'; they will not have entered, but they will have an assurance.

17 Al-Isra (The Concealed/Secret Journey or The Journey While Captured)(17:45) وَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرآنَ جَعَلْنَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالآخِرَةِ حِجَابًا مَّسْتُورًا

17:45 When you recite the Quran, We put, between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter, an invisible veil

19 Maryam (Mary)(19:17) فَاتَّخَذَتْ مِن دُونِهِمْ حِجَابًا فَأَرْسَلْنَا إِلَيْهَا رُوحَنَا فَتَمَثَّلَ لَهَا بَشَرًا سَوِيًّا

(19:17) She screened (veiled) herself from them; then We sent her Our Angel, and he appeared before her as a man in all respects... (except ,based on my careful observation, he was well-spoken, didn't have any B.O. and was very polite--that's how I knew he wasn't from around here)
38 Suad ص

(38:32) فَقَالَ إِنِّي أَحْبَبْتُ حُبَّ الْخَيْرِ عَن ذِكْرِ رَبِّي حَتَّى تَوَارَتْ بِالْحِجَابِ

(38:32) And (Solomon) He said, "Truly do I love the love of good, in remembrance of my Sustainer,"- even as (he was) hidden behind the veil

...Some time in May or June 2012 I discovered why only a Prophet like Solomon can say such a thing, once having Pierced the Veil. He had enough Wisdom and Compassion not to 'kill them all' having learned just how much Power He wielded that was shielded from Him on the Earthly Plane--quite the achievement, since I've seen how He gets when He Sees Red!

BTW when we pray "Assalumu 3lika ayuha al.naby" and seeing how We do not make a distinction or differentiate between the Prophets, the salutation address whomever happens to be the Prophet(s) present at the moment and not necessarily Muhammed pbuh every time. Did You know that?

41 Fussilat (The Criterion)
(41:5) وَقَالُوا قُلُوبُنَا فِي أَكِنَّةٍ مِّمَّا تَدْعُونَا إِلَيْهِ وَفِي آذَانِنَا وَقْرٌ وَمِن بَيْنِنَا وَبَيْنِكَ حِجَابٌ فَاعْمَلْ إِنَّنَا عَامِلُونَ

(41:5) They say: "Our hearts are veiled from that to which you invite us, and in our ears is a deafness, and between us and you is a veil: so do (as you do); for us, we shall do (as we do)"

42 Ash-Shu'ra (The Poets)
(42:51) وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاء حِجَابٍ
أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاء إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ

42:51 It is not fitting for a man that God should speak to him except by inspiration, or as from behind a veil, or by sending a messenger to reveal with His permission, what God wills: for He is The Highest, Most Wise.
83 Al-Mutaffifin (Those Who Give Short Measure)(83:15) كَلَّا إِنَّهُمْ عَن رَّبِّهِمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ لَّمَحْجُوبُونَ

(83:15) Verily, from their Lord, on that Day, will they be veiled.

And that is no way a veiled threat. We've seen this type of thing before and took the trouble to make a note of it some 1400++ years ago-- by your reckoning.

Surah 48 Al-Fat.h (فتح, The Opening, Conquest, Victory, Unsealing, Unfolding)
إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحًا مُّبِينًا (48:1 
وَهُوَ الَّذِي كَفَّ أَيْدِيَهُمْ عَنكُمْ وَأَيْدِيَكُمْ عَنْهُم بِبَطْنِ مَكَّةَ مِن بَعْدِ أَنْ أَظْفَرَكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرًا (48:24 

48: 1 Truly, We Have Availed You of a Clear (Obvious) Victory
48:24 And He Is The One Who Kept their hands from You and Your hands off them in the midst (narrow, straight, gorge, umbilic, valley) of Makka, after He made You Victorious over them, and God Sees All that You do.
