Keykhosrow in the Mind of Ferdowsi and Suhrawardiچکیده [English]
Ancient Persian people have been associated with wisdom and philosophy as one of the most civilized and thought-provoking nations in history. The reflection of ancient philosophy and wisdom can clearly be seen in the thoughts of Ferdowsi and Suhrawardi. As evidence suggests Ferdowsi and Suhrawardi have access to the common resources such as the Avesta book or Conversation with Zoroastrian intellectuals. Meanwhile, one of the intellectual feedback of Sheikh Ishraq was the book of Shahnameh Ferdowsi. Suhrawardi mentions in his books from the mythological kings just like that he has returned Ferdowsi's poetry to prose. Furthermore, one of the favorite hero of Ferdowsi and Suhrawardi is Keykhosrow. All of the Keykhosrow's features and attributes in Shahnameh Ferdowsi are fit for his characteristics in Suhrawardi's thought. Characteristics such as having a God`s sign, a good human being, fair, wisdom, a mystical journey and his absence, are all applicable in Ferdowsi's and Suhrawardi's thoughts. This research attempts to cite resources, using the American school method, while studying how Suhrawardi is influenced by Ferdowsi's thought; we try to compare Keykhosrow's mystical characteristics in the ideas of Ferdowsi and Suhrawardi. The results of the research indicate that Suhrawardi has been modelled on the mystical character of Keykhosrow from Ferdowsi's Shahnameh, and that all of the mystical features of Keykhosrow are equally applicable in the thoughts of Ferdowsi and Suhrawardi.
