Love is an innate and natural need of man's soul and he is always in search of somebody to be his beloved. Prayer or supplication, appearing in its highest form as worshiping, is in fact the most beautiful manifestation of love, the innate assets of man which originates from the heart of human soul. The affectionate prayers of the saints are samples of their endless love toward the presence of God and their deep insight toward that Divine Being. The uneasiness and frenzies are apparent in some of their prayers. Sahifeh Sajjadiah "The Prayer Collection of Imam Sajjad", also called the Psalm book of Mohammad's progeny, includes beautiful and everlasting prayers of Imam Sajjad (Peace Be upon Hirn). Likewise, in prose texts of Persian literature, the passionate love has lots of prominence and is the theme or content of many prayers. This study is an attempt to examine the traces of love and affection in the prayers of Imam Sajjad and Persian prose texts and provide an opportunity to compare them.
