The late Shaykh Rahimahullah says:
“They have said that the word love (hubb) possesses two ‘ba’s': it originates from the word ‘hubub’; however, the first ‘ba’ merged with the second ‘ba’ – the lover was annihilated in the beloved, and for that reason the first ‘ba’ was no longer manifested: it disappeared and was annihilated. This is true love: annihilation.”
