ʻIshq (in Arabic alphabet: عشق) in Modern Persian word eshq (عشق) in Turkish aşk is meaning "love", classical Persian ishq. This word in Arabic literally means love with no lust. The word is derived from Ashiqa, a vine- that when love takes its root in the heart of a lover, everything other than God is effaced. In Islam's Sufi and mystic doctrine it is a concept which refers to divine love or a creature's love for its creator; i.e. man's love for God.
Ishq in both of its contexts, word and concept, has almost the same meaning with a little difference when conceptualized in detail in Sufism.
