Study of perfect man is one of the prominent themes in humanology of Islamic mysticism. Through his spiritual journey he attains the final end of creation and becomes the complete manifestation of God’s all-comprehensive Name in the world of kingdom. He is single of his age and perfect mirror of the Truth, acting as mediate between the angelic world and the world of kingdom. He is vicegerent of God on earth embodying all His perfection. The whole universe centered on him and with his absence it becomes trembled and crumbled. The present article is to answer the question of the keywords used for perfect man in Shiite hadiths. In responding the question the author suggests such possible keywords as Imam, proof of God, vicegerent of Allah, the Single of the age, Pole of universe, mediate of emanation, and the like in searching hadith collections. The perfect embodiment of this sort of man is holy Prophet of Islam and infallible Imams including the last living Imam Mahdi.
