The Holly Qurān, according to mystics’ conviction is not only the most important source of gaining knowledge in the Islamic mysticism field but also an authentic criteria for separation between truth from illusion. Infered from mystical texts, there are two groups of wayfarers of the Path who, because of their false understanding of Qurānic meaning and learnings, have fallen into prey of vain Fantasies and untrue surmises. One group really intends to follow mystical journey and reach the Reality, but because of the most thick veil i.e. egoism, their perceptions are not inward revelation but misunderstanding and lack of insight. Second group have tainted their goals of the mystical path to worldly benefits and advantages, hence their sayings are not valid. According to Persian Sufi texts, both groups, in spite of their pseudo- mystical words which apparently seem to deal with spiritual concepts and matters, are devoid of knowledge and divine intuition. Some have interpreted this kind of pseudo- mystical expressions as ‘unclean light’. Sanāee, Rumi, Mohammad Ghazzāli and his younger brother Ahmad and ‘Eyn al-Qozāt, also have named them in a similar manner which have been examined in this article. Also in the present study, based on the most outstanding Persian mystical texts, different aspects of the subject have been analyzed and supported by sufficient evidences.
