Hussain bin Masoor Hallaj (RA); one of the most controversial but authentic persona in the entire history of Mysticism, derives novel ways in which a human comes closer to the creator and develops those traits that are indispensable to be possessed by an individual if he decides to walk the path of eternal peace and balance. The philosophical idealism of Hallaj narrates the significance of supernatural essences that guides a believer to excel par limits and reach the heights of being a super human. He established the dialectic method to institute cognitive consistency required to stream line the relation between Man and G-d. Foundations of mysticism are thousands of years old but Hallaj was the first mystic who questioned his own existence and re-defined the notion of metaphysical transformation on the basis of form and frame. This manuscript not only encircles the fundamentals of Hallaj’s philosophical idealism but even analyzes the way in which he epitomizes the complex and intricate relationship between existence and essence.
