In the holy Qur'an, perfect man is portrayed on the basis of contemplation and reasoning. However, in mysticism, perfect man is introduced in an intuitive manner. This paper aims at investigating the qualities of perfect man from these two perspectives (mysticism and reasoning). Through the examination of these perspectives we arrive at this conclusion that mysticism and the Qur'an are not separate. It may be true that the reasoning dimension of perfect man is highlighted in the Qur'an, but this does not mean that the Qur'an has been oblivious to the mystical aspect. IbnArabi has pointed to this issue and is in the belief that divine words can be interpreted from both reasoning and intuitive viewpoints and based on the understanding of the reader. Moreover, the mystical dimension of perfect man is not devoid of reasoning, particularly because the primary stages of mysticism are based upon reasoning and rational knowledge. Then, the point deserving attention is that the outcome of investigating the perfect man from these two perspectives has been the same: perfect man has the power to dominate the universe, and as the men of wisdom put it, "the heavens of existence turn around him".
