Islam with its teachings and guidelines for life will be able to make moslems more resilient to the problems of the modern era. In reality, Muslims have not achieved these ideals. Thus, there is a need to reactualize the spiritual dimension. This article aims to present the path of love towards Allah attributed to Rabi'ah Al Adawiyah and examine her concept with irfani sufism concept. The method in this research is library research by reviewing various literature in the form of journals, books, scientific articles, and other sources related to irfani Sufism and Rabi'ah Adawiyah's mababbah. The results of this study explain that Rabi'ah Al Adawiyah is one of the famous irfani figures with the concept of mahabbatullah which comes from inspiration to achieve makrifah. This concept provides a new style in taking the maqamat/spiritual journey of a salik to reach the level of karf. From the concept of Rabiah Adawiyah's mahabbah, although it slightly differentiates the stages of maqamat, the stages are in line with the concept of irfani. So that a unification between mahabbah and irfani will be obtained by combining the practice of sharia and riyadhah.
