Abu Bakr al-Kattaanee (d.322H) said: *“A discussion about love of Allah
(mahabbah) took place in Makkah during the Pilgrimage month. *The Shaykhs
who were present spoke about this matter, and al-Junayd was the youngest of
them. They said to him: ‘O ‘Iraqi, what do you have to say?’ So he bowed his
head and tears were flowing from his eyes, then he said:


*‘A servant should overcome his soul; *

*And be continuous in the remembrance of his Lord; *

*Establishing the rights of his Lord;*

*Focusing upon Him with his heart;*

*The light of fear letting ablaze his heart;*

*Whilst drinking from the vessel of true love;*

*And certain realities become unveiled for him.*

*So when he talks, it is due to Allaah.*

*When he speaks, it is from Allaah.*

*When he moves, it is by the Command of Allaah.*

*And when he is serene, then it is from Allaah.*

*He belongs to Allaah, is for Allaah, and is with Allaah.’*

So the Shaykhs started to weep and said: ‘How can that be increased upon.
May Allaah reward you with good, O crown of the knowledgeable o nes!’.”
