THE SEVEN VEILS OVER CONSCIOUSNESS
By C. Jinarajadasa
Published in 1969
“So, when we live in the Heaven World, we look at Reality minus two veils.”
“If I have in my Heaven World a friend whom I love, I see him minus two veils, As I know my friend here below, he and I are both veiled. I loved him when on earth; but when later after death I enter the Heaven World, then I shall see him minus two veils, and he will reveal to me certain attributes of himself, which by the very nature of the physical plane it was impossible for him to reveal in their fullness.”

Jesus in Heaven on Earth
Jesus in Heaven on Earth by Al-Haj Khwaja Zazir Ahmad, published in 1956. A work on Ahmadiyya Muslim beliefs. From Wikipedia “Ahmadi thought emphasizes the belief that Islam is the final dispensation for humanity as revealed to Muhammad and the necessity of restoring to it its true essence and pristine form, which had been lost through the centuries. Ahmadiyya adherents believe that Ahmad appeared in the likeness of Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice, and peace. They believe that upon divine guidance he divested Islam of fanatical and innovative beliefs and practices by championing what is, in their view, Islam’s true and essential teachings as practiced by Muhammad and the early Islamic community. Thus, Ahmadis view themselves as leading the revival and peaceful propagation of Islam.” Bound hardcover in cream colored boards with original thick paper jacket with light shelfwear only.
