Abstract: 

The ‘Light of God’ is the main sign and the key to understanding mystical texts. Sufis propounded important views about the ‘Light of God’ by their mystical experiences. In Sufi's commentary on this notion, the chief mystical idea is ‘union with The Absolute’. There are different symbolic meanings for the ‘light’ based on mystical and spiritual experiences of Sufis. However, the fundamental concepts such as ‘self-knowledge’, ‘theology’, ‘pantheism’, and other fundamental mystical subjects are included in the basic frame of mystical experience. This article attempts to explain Mulānā's mystical experiences of the ‘Light of God’.
