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
. Earthly paradise
is in the western part of Hurqalya
, and earthly hell is to the east.
