Relation between pleasure and Beauty is one of the most durable rations in Art philosophy and esthetic arguments. Philosophers’ Historical thoughts, from
Plato and Aristotle to Kant, Croce and Heidegger, are the solid reasoning in this claim. Muslim thinkers got some basics from Greek wisdom (Hikmat) in
translation movement, and by creative thoughts and critic mind and with being affected by Islamic teaching blew a new sprite to them. For example Khaji Nasir has called 8th article of Asas al-Ightibas “Assaertion” but relied on publicity and sermon in Quranic Verses there: (16: 125- 126); “call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and godly exhortation and have disputations with them in the best manner.”

There, he has presented an exact definition on pleasure, and then has explained it and its necessities, and the conditions and factors which affect in creating it (like imagination and ambiguity (fancy) and …).
He mentioned the role of pleasure in creating beauty sense not only in chapter 8 but also in 9th chapter in explaining imaginative creation and mimesis and perception of human Aesthetics. He emphasizes that people have vast tent to mimesis and imagination because of nature pleasure of mimesis. Then he mentions that poem makes aesthetical perception of human which causes pleasure and wonder of sprit (Nafs). This article will discuss the relation between pleasure and beauty which is the basically discussion in Art philosophy and Aesthetics in Khaji Nasir’s view.
