These differences are basically formed under the influence of differing views in Sufi sects. One type of insight is “seeing colored lights which seem to be presented for the first time by the followers of Kubrawiyyah School in Islamic Mysticism. Though there is a long background behind using the symbolism of Light and Color in Islamic Mysticism, the integration of these two issues is a process which exclusively seems to belong to Kubrawiyyah  school. Based on the ideology of this School, the disciple in any stage of her/his treading path sees a Colored Light which is indeed an indicative of her/his soul Transcendence. Moreover, in every stage, the disciple passes one of the stages of her/his existence. Each stage is a sign of a dark obstacle. Since the aim of Mysticism is polishing the disciple's soul and removing the barriers from her/his way, that simultaneously happen while seeing Lights, it would be necessary to study the basic thoughts of the followers of Kubrawiyyah school for its emphasizing both seeing Lights, passing the stage of Heart (Ghalb), or removing the dark obstacles
