In Islamic philosophy Suhrawardi (587-549 BC) is a representative figure of Platonic tradition and thought. The position or level that he holds in Illuminationist philosophy is the same as Plato's (427-347 BC) position in peripatetic philosophy. He called Plato in his writings "theosophist Plato" (Aflatun-al-elahi) or "leader of philosophy" (imam-al-hokama) and etc. In fact, Suhrawardi was an impassioned believer of Platonic philosophy. In the report that he has given on Plato's views he considered those ones that are based on intuition. However he also considered Plato's ontological notions, but he finally attached them to Plato's intuition of the existance facts. From his point of view, it seems that Plato had an intuitive awareness of divine essence. Suhrawardi recognized plato as a theosophist, and tried to conjoin Palto's and Zoroaster's thoughts. He used islamic laws for joining these two types of views and representing a combinational new viewpoint.
