Abstract

Mystics have used the concepts of Quranic Verses as well as the Celestial Hadiths and Prophet's traditions remarkably to state their elegant and revelatory attitudes. Through this, they have not only made their theories holy, but also cited verses and traditions to prove their claims. Those who are making spiritual progress have gone beyond the apparent meaning of the traditions, and attempted to explore the concealed meaning of traditions, their internal paraphrase and justification. One of these traditions which have received much attention from the wise people is the Celestial Hadith of “law lāka lamā xalaqtol aflāk” (God Told: O' Mohammed, I created the world for the sake of you). This divine word has become the wealth of the fascinated and wayfarers that each of them considered it based on their own taste and inclination. The essence of the attitudes of mystics reveals the fact that the final goal of creation is the character of Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him) and His abluent Family, who are the best reflection of God's Names and Properties. In this dispute, this Celestial Hadith has been examined and investigated in terms of documentation, difference in terminology, the reason of relationship among the creation of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), the Worlds of Existence, and the position of the Prophet (PBUH) in this world and the Eternity.
