Mathnavi of Musibat-Nama in forty episodes and in a coherent and organized structure exposes clearly Attar's mystical views and experiences. The genuineness of Attar's Musibat-Nama is due to new dynamic experiences through which Attar has explained both the gradual and ascending movement of spiritual pilgrimages of man (solouk) and also the dialectical links between different phases of these spiritual pilgrimages. What is important in the overall structure of this mathnavi is the combination of multiple streams of thought and interpretation of Attar's mystical perceptions. Attar presents these thoughts, the principles of which had already been introduced by Sanai, in Persian literature and mysticism through spiritual journeys in the world of soul. In this paper, the outline and interpretation of Attar's mystical perceptions in this mathnavi are described. It is shown that his interpretation in this mathnavi has allowed him to, alongside with the coherent and organized combination of religious, mystical, and philosophical elements, consider the occult concepts and their logical sequence.
