Mysticism is an ancient legacy of Iran and mystical literature is an expression of the nuances and beauties of Islamic culture of the country. Mystical literature has witnessed brilliant figures who had been of wonderful talents. Writing in the wake of revelation their works have continued to be among the cultural icons of Iran for past twelve centuries. Ibn Turkah's Tamhid al-Qawaeid is one of these great works in mysticism. The most important feature of this book is rationalization of mystical truths through discursive proofs. Tamhid al-Qawaeid is a work of intuition married to reason. Some believe that Ayatollah Jawadi's epilogue to this work is like the prologue that Qeysari once wrote to Ibn Arabi's Fusus al-Hikam. This new edition of the work is thoroughly revised and with annotations and glossaries.
