The subject of this article is a comparison of the concept of acquiescence (rizā) in the words of Amīr al-Mu’minīn ‘Alī (A.S.) in Ghurar al-hikam wa durar al-kilam and the sayings of the Persian Mystics.
In this article, there is an assertion as the first hypothesis that: no meaningful difference can be seen between Imam ‘Alī (A.S.)’s viewpoint and that of the mystics in the general notion of rizā.
It is implied from the mystics’ sayings and views on the issue of rizā that there are two viewpoints common among them. The first viewpoint regards rizā as among the stations (on the mystical path) and views it as being acquired; the second viewpoint considers rizā as among the mystical states and takes it to be bestowed and granted.
The second hypothesis is that Imam ‘Alī (A.S.)’s viewpoint is close to those who regarded rizā as among the stations and considered it to be acquired.
