Illusory Love

('Ishqi majazi) is love for everything that is other-than-Allah, that is, love for illusion. But Allah is the Object behind every object of love. Illusory love is in itself an illusion because Only Allah Is.

(Batil). Error or falsehood. Batil is that which is unreal. It is naught. It is non existence. Batil is everything that is other-than-Allah, because Allah is al Haqq, the Real, the Creative Truth. The knower knows that there is no falsehood. He knows that 'Everything is Allah'. The Truth has come and falsehood has vanished.
('Arif Billah). This Man is the one who has fulfilled his 'reason to be'. He has purified himself in readiness to receive the supreme mystic knowledge which is Knowledge of Allah. It is in knowing Allah that man is drawn closer to Allah. 'The water takes on the colour of its cup'. The clearer the receptacle the greater is its capacity to manifest the Divine.
