Where is the Love?

"The Universal Intellect is named Allah, deriving from the word wulh, which means passionate, ecstatic, all consuming love. It feels such love for the Divine Essence which originated it, and in its intoxication it literally ceases to exist, for alongside the Divine Essence there is nothing. On its own level (ritbah), though, it is Pure Being, extending out to infinity, encompassing an infinite number of worlds..."
~ Shaykh Abd al-Hakeem Carney
