From the first days of mystical contemplation, there have been significant differences between mystics’ interpretation of religion and that of canonists. Canonists have restricted  religion to sharia and regard everything else as apostasy. Mystics, on the other hand, are liberal in their point of view and believe that religion covers a more expanded semantic field than that presented by canonists. Differences in interpretation have led to various clashes between mystics and canonists. The former considers the latter as being naïve and superficial while the latter considers the former as being pagan and apostate. The clashes between these two groups are rooted in two factors: (1) canonists’ superficial interpretation of religion and their focus on the outer layer along with their layman behavior have led them to consider mystics as pagans and apostates; (2) mystics’ unorthodox behavior and their blatant and superfluous remarks which contradict religion, especially when interpreted superficially, along with fake mystics’ behavior inspired by the social ills of the 5th and 6th century sowed the seeds of hostility with canonists. The researcher aims at scrutinizing Sheykh Jaam’s manuscripts to show that he goes beyond sharia and delves into deeper layers of tariqa and haqiqa.
