The philosophers have raised different opinions about the source of the knowledge. In this context, most of the philosophers prefered the mind and the sense as a source of it, but there were some philosophers regarding it as the intiution. Sühreverdî prefered to use the intiution which he considered as more credible than the mind and sense. According to him, the people purified by rational methods can reach the knowledge of the truth with the light arising inside of the human. This knowledge acquired by this way is the most valuable one. Although according to him, the means of the most credible knowledge is inspiration, the knowledge acquired through the mind and the sense has some meanings to the one extent in his perseption. The matter of how the philosopher reached the intiutional approach and how he mentioned it in his philosophy is assessed in this study.
