Abstract

 Khorasan and Baghdad mystical schools are linked together by Jibāl (or the non-Arab Iraq) school. Many researchers have studied thoughts and works of the masters of Khorasan and Baghdad schools; nevertheless, several of the underlying intellectual and mystical structures of these schools still remain unknown. Consequently, these figures are usually considered as obscure masters, having eccentric ideas, even blamed or rejected by other masters.This article introduces one of the most prominent mystics of the late fourth and early fifth century AH, namely, Ja’far ibn Mohammad ibn Hossein Abhari, known as Baba Ja’far, the writer of ADAB AL-FOQARA’ (The Manners of the Seekers of Truth).There is no trace of him and no mention of his book in Persian MYSTICAL TEXTS. However, in some Arabic biographies or treatises written about Jibal school, Baba Ja’far has been regarded as a great mystic, poet, and scholar of Hadith, holding an important position in the mystical thought of that region. Basing the focus of this study on classical texts and sources, a new portrait of this mystic is being depicted.
