Two types of hidden matters
As that which is hidden from you is the Paradise, the Hell-Fire, the angels, the damsels of Paradise, the act of resurrection and that which comes after it. All of those things are hidden from you and you believe in them.
The second type of hidden matters is that which you have hidden yourself from O-servant! and that is the Ḥaḍra (presence) of Allāh-Taʿālā. The Ḥaḍra of Allāh-Taʿālā is not absent; it is omnipresent and closer to you than anything else. If you fail to find this Ḥaḍra, then you are the one who is absent, not the Ḥaḍra.~
