al-Mureed

Of the seven leading names the fourth is al-Mureed, the Desirer.

God is Love:

Know that before its association with shadowy phenomenal being, the limitless being was hidden. There was no trace from the traceless. By the necessity of its own love for itself, the limitless being descended through a procession of divine and phenomenal emanations. In every creature, by virtue of the constraint of limitation it appears as 'lover', and by virtue of transcending limitation it reveals itself as 'beloved'.
– Shah Kalimullah Jahanabadi
God plays the game of love with Himself. He himself is His own lover and He Himself is His own beloved. He is not occupied with anyone else, for there is no one else.
– Shaykh Muhammad Chishti
