The Drink of Love

Untitled Document

.....................................................................................................................

Then, Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) continued : “…And he (the lover of Allah) has taken the drink of the pure love of his Master…”

In other words, ‘the Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) of Allah Ta’ala intoxicates him like a cup of wine.’ The taking of the name of Allah gives him more intoxication than that person who is addicted to wine.

The joy of taking Your name
Is far greater than the enjoyment
Of those who love their wine.

This is not a worldly intoxication which makes a person lose his sense of sanity and then commit indecent and obscene acts. The intoxication inherent in the beautiful name of Allah is a rare and exceptional kind of intoxication.

Maulana Jalaluddeen Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) says :
 
“When I take the name of Allah,
then from every hair of my body,
fountains of honey begin to flow.”

Some Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala) have even disclosed that they experience the sweetness of the name of Allah in the true and literal sense : their saliva becomes sweet.

That Allah who has placed sweetness in sugar cane, cannot He put the same into our tongues?

 

subheading-iconThree Intoxicants


My Sheikh once asked me : “How many kinds of intoxicating drinks are there ?”

I replied : “I do not know.”

Hazrat then explained to me that there are three kinds of intoxicants :

  • The first is the intoxicating wine of ‘Dunya’. The majority on the face of the earth are intoxicated with something of the earth: gold, silver, property, business, fashion, cars, etc. Yet this ‘Dunya’ is something that is neither ‘Azali’ nor ‘Abadi’ – meaning that it was not existent previously. It has been created. Added to this it will not remain forever. It will one day perish.
  • The second kind of intoxicant is the intoxication of the Aakhirah (Hereafter). Jannat (Heaven in Urdu) is the drink of the Aakhirat. Even though it is not ‘Azali’ (from all times), it is ‘Abadi – meaning that it will not be destroyed. It will exist into eternity. This intoxicant is permissible; in fact it is recommended to seek.
  • However, the third kind of intoxicant is the intoxication of ‘HAQ’. The drink of DIVINE LOVE. This is unique and unparalleled as it is neither created nor will it perish. It was. It is. It will always be.

This drink is exclusive to the Ahlullah (Friends of Allah Ta'ala). If we desire ‘the drink of the pure love of our Master’, we will have to keep company with His lovers. Their generosity is such that they share the same with those who have the thirst.
