(Kufr). Misbelief or denial and suppression of the Truth or covering-up of the Truth. Taken negatively misbelief (Kufr) is a belief that will lead to wretchedness. However when taken positively the real kufr is the dissolution of 'I-ness' in the 'I-ness' of Allah. This covering is Annihilation in Allah. It is the guarding of the inner secret which is the Sacred Reality within. "If the reality of the Sufi was to be unveiled he would be worshipped".
(Kufr haqiqi). Real suppression and covering-up. The knower and lover of Allah has departed from metaphorical Islam and entered into the real covering-up of the Truth (Kufr Haqiqi). Real Kufr is the covering-up of one's inner reality and not exposing it to others - the reality that only Allah IS.
