In The Name of Allah The Most Beneficent The Most Merciful
Sahykh Sadooq (r.a.) has through his chains of narrators, narrated that Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said: Amirul Momineen Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) said that the Almighty Allah created Prophet’s Noor (light) 424000 years before the creation of the heavens, the earth, Arsh (Throne), Kursi, Lauh, Qalam, Paradise, Hell and all prophets. Then from the same Noor He created 12 veils, that is, the veil of Power (Qudrat), the veil of Greatness (Azmat), the veil of Grace (Minnat), the veil of Mercy (Rahmat), the veil of Bliss (Saadat), the veil of Wonder (Karamat), the veil of Status (Manzilat), the veil of Guidance (Hidayat), the veil of Prophethood (Nubuwwat), the veil of Loftiness (Rafat), the veil of Awe (Haibat), and veil of Intercession (Shafat). He kept this holy light in the veils of Might for twelve thousand years. It was reciting, “Glory to the Lord, the Almighty Allah,” therein.
Then He kept it in the veil of Power for 11000 years
