Abstract: 

This research is about the comparison between Orthodox mysticism and Kubrawiyid Sufism on the concept of vision, both of which have common origin. The eastern Orthodoxy has esoteric and spiritual epigrams more than other Christian sects, and considering geographical and political conditions, has close relationship with the east, specifically Islamic world. An important issue of Semitic religions is possibility of vision of God. In Orthodox Christian mysticism and Kobrawiyids, what is visible is God’s powers and attributes. By purifying the heart, man can see them, and essence of God remain invisible and indescribable. But Christians describe the vision as vision of Trinity, especially vision of Christ, but because of the absolute transcendence of God in Islam, Kobrawiyid mystics don’t speak of the vision of God, rather, they describe the vision as vision of attributes and His manifestations. Also some of the mystics of both ways have used black light symbol to describe his and her mystical vision and some of them have used symbol of light.
