—The topic of veiling is very complex and lengthy,
and it can be explored from two perspectives, quantitative
(outer view) and qualitative (inner view). The quantitative
aspect of veiling is discussed in religion, and it has been deemed
necessary in different ways in all divine books. But aside from
obeying the religious laws (the principles of the way of God), the
qualitative aspect of this obedience (the quality of the way of
God) is also important, and ignoring or not paying sufficient
attention to it would prevent achieving the sufficient result, and
is not true religiosity. In other words, the apparent keeping and
obeying of the religious laws and orders is not sufficient, and
transcendence, results from obeying both inner as well as the
outer aspects of the religion. In the qualitative examination of
veiling, subjects like ‘energy of the second type,’ ‘attraction and
repulsion,’ and ‘the inner value’ are much discussed.
