Abstract: 
The introduction of persian mystic poetry heralded a great event in the history of Persian literature as well as the Islamic mysticism for two main reasons. First, it paved the way for the entrance of Gnostic trainings into the Persian language and created some of the most outstanding works in persian poetry. Second, it exposed the persian poets to new horizons so that Gnostic concepts and conceptualizations resulted in shaping deep and varied concepts in Persian poetry. However, this trend did not influence Persian poets consistently. That is, some poets exclusively applied poetry as a means to express mystic perceptions and concepts and created pure Gnostic works. another group, however, discussed Gnostic terminologies and concepts along with other concepts and contents. This latter group did not imply the same objectives in applying these terminologies. Some of these poets did it simply to comply with the dominant fashion of the age among Persian literary figures. Another group were stimulated by their interest and beliefs in mysticism. The category of poems known as the mystical is highly important and must be analyzed side by side with those of pure Gnostic works. One of the poets associated with Gnostic concepts and interpretations is Khaghani, the composer of so many mystical poets. This article examines Khaghanis poetry in an attempt to provide answers to the following two fundamental questions: 1) To what extent are Khaghanis discussions and interpretations of Gnostic issues authentic? 2) is there any particular direction in Khaghanis mystical poems and what are his specific gnostic areas of interest?
