One of the important factors to the Formation of Suhrawardi's Philosophy opinions is also peripatetic tradition of Islam. Although our thinker establishes his relation with the Peripatetics of Islam on the criticism of their Philosophy opinions, sometimes he shares same opinions with them. Suhrawardi found the Ibn Sina's tradition in Isfehan where he went for education. Because of this we can say that he started to take the knowledge of Philosophy with the Ibn Sina's tradition. Probably for this reason Ibn Sina has an important place to his studying on Peripatetics of Islam. When he criticized the Peripatetics of Islam he discriminated him. In addition, when he mentioned Ibn Sina in his works he talked about him as "our senior", "respected person" and didn't exceed the limit on criticizing. Describing of "east" is as "home of light" and "west" is as "home of dark" in "Hayy b. Yekzan" by Ibn Sina guided the thought of 'meşrikî wisdom which formed in East and West concept. When Suhrawardi's Philosophy is studied as a whole it is realized that Ibn Sina influenced the thinker in a lot of matter. In this article, it will be tried to talk talk about how much contribution Ibn Sina made to the Suhrawardi's Formation of the Philosophy of Ishraq by examples.
