(Mahabbah). The lofty, pure and unconditional love of Allah. The attainment of such love transforms the seeker from 'the one who desires Allah' into the murad, 'the one whom Allah desires'. Nothing is greater than this. The spiritual intoxication arising from the wine of pure love comes from regarding only the Beloved. The truth of mahabbah is that every atom of the lover (muhibb) bears witness to the intensity of his Love for Allah. Out of such pure love develops the passionate and ceaseless yearning for Allah ('Ishq).
