Conceptual metaphor is a major topic in cognitive linguistics, which is based on understanding one conceptual domain on the basis of another conceptual domain. Cognitive semantics may be considered as one of the sciences that pave the way for discovering and analyzing the contextual relationships of hadiths. Infallibles call on their masses to think about what is intangible through material matters and sensations, in order to express the meaning of the world. This process leads to the articulation of religious teachings by presenting existential and epistemological similarities between the domains of principle and destination. The aim of this study is to analyze the conceptual metaphors of the world in hadiths. The study is of the basic type with the descriptive-analytical approach and the data analysis method is qualitative. The study population consists of the text and includes the hadiths of the Infallibles (pbuh) in the book "This World and the Hereafter" by Ayatollah Rey Shahri. The results showed that the most important conceptual domains of the world in the hadiths include aspects of nature, business, plants, animals, food, clothing, daily sensory experiences, practical tools of life, specific cultural beliefs, deep emotional experiences, and religious valuable ideas, which are presented through a combination of Visual diagrams, a meaningful and enlightening cognitive system in an understandable and metaphorical context. And by linking with the cultural unconscious and the audience's acquired awareness, it causes credibility and focus, and the teachings are better transmitted
