Melāyē Jizīrī (Mullah Ahmad al-Jazarī) is a Muslim thinker who lived between the end of 16th century and the middle of 17th century. His work, Dīwān, is written in Kurdish (Kurmanjī dialect) language. Many Kurdish scholars, poets and wises were under the influence of al-Jizīrī. In that respect, his work was examinated in Kurdish madrasahs and lodges, almost as a holy text, throughout centuries. The aim of this work is to explore the ways in which his Dīwān intersects with school of Islamic philosophy. In other words this work is restricted to dealing with Melā's approach to Peripatetic, illuminationism and Sufism, which are wellknown schools of Islamic philosophy.
