In the wide spectrum of Islamic art and culture, architecture is the manifestation of divine verses and the sayings of prophets and holly and selected people. Such buildings, including mosques and minarets, can be regarded as the most prominent works reflecting the Islamic thought during their constructing and decorating. Minarets, with religious and nonreligious applicability, are embroidered with varieties of geometric and inscription designs. The main objective of this study is investigating and evaluating the place of the inscriptions in Saljoughi minarets’ decorations. This study tries to answer this question: which kind of religious concepts and themes the holly verses written on the minarets are representing of? The framework of this study is steady upon this hypothesis that the artists who made inscriptions on the minarets such as Chehl Dokhtaran, Minare Gar, Ziar and Sareban, beside of trying to indicate and focus on the absolute traits of Allah through employing verses like Ayatol Korsi , aimed to make a purposeful combination of the height of the minarets and the motifs of the inscriptions which indicate God’s sovereignty over the world. Due to their height, Islamic minarets which are interpreted as the pillars between earth and heaven according to the theosophical point of view, guide the view of the audience from earth to the sky. By applying the sentences and religious verses indicating the absolute rule of God, artists who designed these monuments have fertilized the view of the audience during this ascendant.So, it could be indicated that the concept of the inscriptions drawn on the minarets has a direct relation with the height of the Saljoughi and Islamic minarets which have been investigated in this study. This study has been conducted through descriptiveanalytical method, using library investigations.
