Introduction of Irfan(Mysticism) in Islam 

Irfan ( Mysticism ) as a scientific and cultural system contains two subsections or categories : 1 ) : practical Irfan . 2 ) : theoretical Irfan .

1 : practical Irfan :  a ) : responsibilities of individual in relation with on self  . There is a very interesting Narriation ( Hadith ) from Imam Ali ( As ) regarding this point : ” He who knows himself knows His Lord . 
B ) : responsibilities and relation with Cosmos . 
C ) : responsibilities and relation with God . 

Irfan in practice resemble ” Ethics ” . In this part of Irfan path toward Allah is identified and how to traverse the path is taught . 
Imam Ridha ( as ) has said : May Allah bless the one who knows where he comes from , and where he is , and he is headed toward . 

And there is an other Hadith from our beloved prophet ( PBUH&Hf ) regarding this point : 

قال رسول الله صلي الله عليه و آله : ان لربكم في ايّام دهركم نفحات الا فتعرضوا لها : 

In your days of your lives breezes of mercy and blessing from your Lord comes to you , will you not expose yourselves to them . 


An important point : 


Going through the stations and states of being requires a MASTER  who has already been through them , other wise there is a great RISK of going astray . 


I WILL END WITH AN AMAZING SAYING FROM IMAM ALI ( as ) : 

O’ LORD : I DO NOT WORSHIP YOU FOR A DESIRE OF REACHING HEAVEN , NOR DO I WORSHIP YOU OUT OF FEAR OF HELL , EVEN IF YOU WOULD NOT CREAT HEAVEN AND HELL , I WOULD STILL WORSHIP YOU FOR I SEE YOU WORTHY OF IT .
