ثُمَّ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لِلَّذِينَ هَاجَرُواْ مِن بَعْدِ مَا فُتِنُواْ ثُمَّ جَاهَدُواْ وَصَبَرُواْ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ مِن بَعْدِهَا لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Kashf Al-Asrar Tafsir

16:110 Then surely thy Lord-toward those who emigrated after they were tormented, then struggled and were patient-surely thy Lord after that is forgiving, ever-merciful.
The reality of emigration is that you emigrate from your own makeup, you abandon yourself and your desires, and you place the foot of nonbeing on top of your own attributes. Beginningless love may then lift the curtain and endless passion may show its beauty. How beautifully that chevalier spoke!
Endless passion has nothing to do with a heart

He placed the fire of yearning for Him in his inwardness, and the beauty of beginningless passion toward him. He alludes to this with His words, "We gave Abraham his rectitude from before" [21:51]. Then, when he came into existence, on the day when he stood in the desert of bewilderment, his heart was lit up with love for the Eternal and his spirit was drunk with the wine of nonbeing. At the moment of the morning draft of the passionate, the shouting of the drunken, and the uproar of the heart-lost, he was driven by craving for the wine of nonbeing to say with the tongue of helplessness concerning whatever he looked upon, "This is my Lord" [6:76].
