Abstract:   (376 Views)

Many researchers have researched the source of Islamic Sufism from a
certain intellectual disposition. The prevailing view of these research
works, is based on arbolic thinking and having centralized roots.
According to the theory of allegorical Metamorphosis, each of the topics
discussed in Islamic Sufism, can have separate roots. The present paper
aims to show that Iranian Culture is one of the sources of Islamic Sufism,
and formation of Mystical Supervision Theory in Iran can be a result of
an evolution in Iranian beliefs about Divine Glory. In this paper, the
environmental and intellectual backgrounds affecting on the
compilation of the discussion of Mystical Supervision by Hakim
Termazi, will be discussed. And also by showing the pathway of
Mystical Supervision Theory till the era of Sohrevardi and its effect on
the works of great Mystics and Intellectuals, the theory of Sohrevardi
and its relevance to the theory of Mystical Supervision will be discussed.
Moreover the combination of these ideas – that despite the evolution in
elements, has preserved its semantic nature- is examined.
The present research, shows that the link between Khosravāni
wisdom and Iranian Mysticism and the gradual evolution in the theory
of Mystical Supervision, how prepared the intellectual and theoretical
backgrounds for what later called the Safavi Supervision. The primary
backgrounds of this evolution, was present in the Iranian Culture and a
great thinker like Sohrevardi gave it a new life.Many researchers have researched the source of Islamic Sufism from a
