Philosophy of the creation of man and the world is one of the fundamental problems that mankind has always tried to discover and understand it. The mystics, citing Quranic verses that refer to Love, believe there is only God's love that causes the man being created; and other creatures and whatever is in the heavens and the earth are created for human beings. In various literatures of Mysticism and Sufism, the attention is repeatedly paid to the love of God to man and love of man to God. This elegant point is also included in the unparalleled books Kashf al-Asrar and Oddat al-Abrar of Meybodi; and with investigation in its spiritual commentary of Quran verses, it is determined that Meybodi, like many mystics, believed that the God's love for man is the source of creation. In this research, we try to survey the Meybodis viewpoint about the Love and its relation to the philosophy of the creation of man through an analytical approach.

Keywords: Mysticism, Kashf al-Asrar and Oddat al-Abrar, Love and Creation.
