The theory of conceptual metaphor, derived from cognitive linguistics, is a type of conceptual tool to discover the meaning of the text in the field of emotions and feelings that plays an imperative role in understanding abstract concepts. In this article, one of the applications of conceptual metaphor in the field of happiness, in the two stories "Shohar-e Aho Khanum” (Lady Aho’s Husband) and "Bafte-hai Ranj" (Woven Sorrows) by Ali Mohammad Afghani are analyzed in a descriptive-analytical manner. Happiness is one of the fundamental human emotions that exists in all cultures hence by examining its conceptual metaphor, differences and similarities between this phenomenon in various cultures can be obtained. The present research has been carried out in a descriptive and analytical way by relying on the data of library sources. The findings of the research indicate that in two literary works by the author, 47 conceptual metaphors related to happiness were found, which are often consistent with the global metaphors of happiness presented by Kövecses based on the origin of 16 nouns, mapped with zoological processes, naturalism, fluidity, physicalism and a direction in the metaphor use of two stories. Of the three types of conceptual metaphor, four are directional metaphors, 19 examples are ontological metaphors, and 24 examples are structural metaphors. In terms of its origin, the most frequent field is "substance inside the container". A comparative study of this category in the paintings of the Tabriz school of the Safavid period indicates that this issue is reflected in the surviving works of this school.
