Persian philosopher شهاب الدين يحيى سهروردى or Shihabuddin Yahya as-Suhrawardi (born 1153 in North-West-Iran; died 1191 in Aleppo) was the founder of School of Illumination, one of the most important islamic doctrine in Philosophy.
His life spanned a period of less than forty years in the middle of twelfth century AD, produced a series of highly assured works that established him as the founder of new school of philosophy, the school of Illumination (hikmat-al-Ishraq).
Also arising out of the peripatetic philosophy developed by Ibn Sina, Suhrawardi illuminationism philosophy is critical of several of the positions taken by Ibn Sina, and radically departs from the latter through the creation of a symbolic language (which is manly derived from ancient Iranian culture or Farhang-e-Khosravani) to give expression to his hikma.
