Eid

God possesses a drink which is reserved for his intimate Friends (Awliya):

When they drink they become intoxicated, when they become intoxicated they become joyful,

when they become joyful they become sweet, when they become sweet they begin to melt,

when they begin to melt they become free, when they become free they seek,

when they seek they find, when they find they arrive, when they arrive they join,

and when they join there is no difference between them and their Beloved.

– Sayyidina Ali ibn Abu Talib.
