Paying attention to the importance of dreams has its roots in the long history of mankind and is one of the indisputable sources of knowledge in religions. The subject of this paper is which role has the dream played in Mazdeyasn'i thought. Research shows that one of the oldest religions that its religious texts mentioned dreams and explained its importance in proving religious claims is Zoroastrian religious texts. Numerous dreams have been mentioned in Mazdeyasn'i texts, which show that this divine religion, like all major religions, paid attention to dreams and based on them, important issues such as the legitimacy of the Prophet of Zoroastrianism. This attention to the dream, which continues in divine philosophies and mystical texts, points to the need to pay attention to that important human event. The inattention to the dream by scholars of the history of religions and scholars of religious texts is an oppression to this epistemological source. In the contemporary period, research on dreams has been assigned to some scientific disciplines, which have completely emptied it of the content of transcendental knowledge and reduced it to psychological and neural activities. Referring to the importance of dreams in religious texts is a step to serious reflection on this Mystical intuition and source of knowledge.
