Imagination is a two-dimensional concept. The first dimension considers imagination as an absurd concept (non-existent), this meaning is often used in everyday conversations conveying the sense of nothingness. The second, corresponds to the existent dimension commonly discussed by philosophers and art theorists. In the latter approach, "imagination" is the original material of art which provides the opportunity for creation. For better and deeper understanding of "imagination" it seems helpful to review the Islamic Scholars ideas.
The present study is looking for the analysis of imagination role in the creation of art. Also, we attempt to justify the process of art creation from the transcendental process happening in artists mind (spirit). At last, in the conclusion part we have come up to the idea that art is the result of the intuition of truth based on imaginative forms, and art world is the result of imagination. The more the artist purifies his being, the more successful he would be in the creation of art.
