Original term Sufi Equivalent Common term
God – Merged Majoob – Allah Majoob
God – Intoxicated Mast – Allah Mast
God – Absorbed Mashgul – Allah Salik – like pilgrim
God – Communed Ma – Allah Salik – like pilgrim
God – Mad Divana – e – Allah Divana – e Haq

A majzoob like a Mast who, incidentally is, a rare type has the salient characteristic of God-intoxication, and has also the attribute of the true majoob of the seventh plane that he is to a greater or lesser extent merged in God, according to the degree of his advancement.

A true majoob, a God merged soul in the seventh plane, is, as we have already seen, a wali; and also, in the sense that he enjoys the blissful intoxication of God-united soul, he is also a mast.

These rather like the case of one who, being a master of arts is automatically also a matriculate. A majoob, however, although he is automatically both a wali and a mast, is never a salik.
