The intellectual system of any text can be described by analyzing its conceptual metaphors. The aim of the present study is to find the structures derived from the conceptual metaphors of Lam’at (Divine Flashes), written by Fakhr al-Dīn Ibrahīm Irāqī. These structures represent the intellectual system of Lam’at. To this end, first, the conceptual metaphors of the text are identified by careful examination of its language. Next, the structure derived from the conceptual metaphors of the text, which functions as a mirror reflecting its worldview, is described by analyzing the metaphors and finding the links among them. The four main pillars of Lam’at and Fakhr al-Dīn Ibrahīm Irāqī's thought are these conceptual metaphors: ‘God is love’, ‘love is the king’, ‘love is the Sun’ and ‘love is a mirror’. In addition to the links among these four metaphors, the conceptual metaphor ‘love is human’ plays a key role in linking the four conceptual metaphors to each other and shows the intellectual level of Lam’at. There are other conceptual metaphors in Lam’at, each of which describes the worldview of its author, but the abovementioned five metaphors are more pivotal.
