Ishq (Urdu: عشق, literal English translation: "love") is the sixth studio album and the ninth overall album of the Pakistani sufi rock band, Junoon. The album was released on January 1, 2001 and was released by the title of Andaz outside Pakistan.


The album topped the charts in Pakistan as well as in the Gulf and South Asia, with its first single entitled "Zamane ke Andaz" (Saqi-Nama) which made it to #1 in the Gulf, and to #5 on the Asian charts.
