Martin Heidegger chooses Being as his subject matter for his philosophy and believes that it has been neglected throughout the history of thinking . So he calls attention to it .The basis of his thought, he believes is to regard Being and to question it .Therefore he begins his job by men’s special being (Dasein) , for it is he who questions Being and this is one his essential characteristics . His method introduced as “hermeneutic phenomenology” differs completely from resoning method of mysticism and also the transcendental phenomenology of Husserl . In this method the relation of man(Dasein) has been analyzed with regard to his structures and his special mode of his being . In fact he approaches being by the analysis of its meaning . His method can be used in islamic philosophy and mysticism.
