Abstract: 
Sheikh Shahabdin Sohravardi is a philosopher and Gnostic whose philosophy is a combination of theoretical insight and practical discipleship .In his philosophy the theory and practice are so combined together that he does not call philosopher those who are out of this way. He gives us a picture of different stages of discipleship in his works.
Human soul is an illumination limited to worldly life and it should come back to his real home. In this way, a disciple should put away all dark dependences and by strong will, reliance in God and his teacher's teachings, he should undergo theoretical and practical mortification.
Sohravardi gives his teachings as analogy, symbol, allusion and metaphors. His instructions are conveyed to his disciples and followers through codes and as dialogues in which sometimes he is the sheikh and sometimes the disciple. The chain of Sufism that he belongs to is not well known and this causes a problem to describe a systematic explanation of his disciple's method. If one refer to his works, one can fmd out some of his ways, and the main constructive elements of his Gnostic path way.
