About This Special Issue
Mysticism is a looking at inner paths that shows both the truth to the man and the way to truth that leads human beings to know the absolute oneness. We know Mysticism by the name of God in all matters of the world. For this reason, there is an important relationship between mysticism and spiritual well-being. Therefore, the only way to reach the spiritual station is th elevation of spirit. Through elevation of the human soul Human reaches the station of caliphate of Allah, the position that most prophets, such as Mohammad, Christ, Ibrahim, Dawood, Moses and other prophets had. Therefore, If we take the history of the religions of the past Undoubtedly, we will come to the conclusion that what is most likely to affect human evolution and thought is through the channel of religion. But in the meantime, mysticism and spirituality have had a tremendous place because they believe that dignity is devoted to its owner. Therefore, mysticism, with inspiration from schools of Islam, Christianity, and Jews, has a special status among other issues.
