Cognitive metaphor theory is an effective approach that studies the linguistic concepts by following the mappings which include source and target spheres. This article tries to examine the concept of “Love” in Savāneh-al Oshagh by Ghazzaāli. It starts with focusing on lexical elements that are characterized by their emotional sense, in order to discover their metaphorical networks and canonical metaphors, and recognize, finally, the viewpoint of the writer about the concept of love. The article concludes that Ghazzāli follows more the outlook of a devotee and ascetic than that of a lover.
