Persian mysticism, or the Persian love tradition, is a traditional interpretation of existence, life and love in Iran. It relies on revelatory and heart-felt principles in its reasoning. In fact, Perso-Islamic sufism is the practical aspect of Persian mysticism.

Thought[edit]

Persian mystical thought has been analysed critically by Abdolhossein Zarrinkoub, Abdolkarim Soroush, and Dariush Shayegan. In Ghazzali, one can witness the fear-based mysticism in its most detailed and eloquent form; in Rumi, one can find love-based mysticism; in Hafiz the pleasure-based mysticism. Under Rumi's influences, Abdolkarim Soroush is currently working on power-based or epic mysticism.
