Abstract: 

In the first place, the present article discusses the biography of Sheikh Shahab aI-Din Suhravardi and, quotes some of Ibn Abi Osaibe'a, stories about the Sheikh. Then the author refers also to the story of Hayy bin Yaqdhan and the most important preoccupation of man, that is, how a stranger can return to his homeland.
Allusions are made to the Sheikh's idea about philosophy. The Sheikh believes that a philosophy whose purpose is not to guide the philosopher to achieve spiritual truth is nothing but a mere claim. In the next step the author defines the illuminationist theosophy and refers to the categorization of the philosophers in the Sheikh's book. According to this classification, of them are searching philosophers but are not divine. The divine sages too are of several categories. Referring to the idea of Suhravardi about theosophists, the author concludes that Suhravardi puts a theosophist who has made achievements in philosophy and spiritual experience at the top of the hierarchy of the theosophists and calls such a theosophist a spiritual pole.
