Persian Sufism teaches that reality is divided between 3 parts, which are also divided into nine climes.
Hurqalya is the land of the eighth clime, the "Heavenly Earth." It is situated at the summit of the mountain Qaf between our physical world and the transcendant world - it is a barzakh (screen) between them. It is the boundary between earthly time and eternity. Earthly paradise is in the western part of Hurqalya, and earthly hell is to the east.
