Lavâyeh is one of the most famous Persian mystical texts. The treatise has been written following the example of Sheikh Ahmad Ghazzāli’s Savāneh. Devotion of ‘Eyn al-Qozāt of Hamadān to the author of Savāneh and relation of them with each other, and some other factors, caused that Lavāyeh be known by the name of ‘Eyn al-Qozāt’s, and even once has been published by his name in Iran. This untrue attribution has been spread to many books and literary researches. On the other hand, in some writings including catalogues, history of literature works, and literary- mystical researches, in addition to ‘Eyn al-Qozāt, others have been named as Lavāyeh author. In this article, on the basis of endopharic and anafra evidences, attribution of Lavâyeh to ‘Eyn al-Qozāt has been rejected and accordingly Hamid al-Din Nāguri, an Indian Sufi master of seventh century is being introduced as the author of the treatise.
