Abstract: 

The character, as a major element of storytelling, has many varieties. One of them is the historical character. The Masnavi contains many historical characters, but since historical stories are different from "historical accounts", and historical accounts are not the same as "historical events", the historical characters included in the Masnavi are different from their story versions. One of them is the chief of the Khorasan mystics, Ibrahim Adham, whose abandoning of power (emirate) is well known. Although there is not much historical information available on the life of Ibrahim Adham, one may find tales about him in some stories from the Central Asia, however, these are mixed with fiction. There are also various accounts of him abandoning the emirate which come under three major titles, namely "the camel, the caravanserai, and the hunt." They feature different events but share the same beginning, end and storyline. Molavi has chosen the camel story and put it in his Masnavi. There are also others who have related the same story and who are temporally and intellectually close to Molavi, among them Attar, Shams, and Sultan Valad. Although the quartet(3+1)'s narrations are considered similar and put in the same group, they are characterized by different storytelling and dialectic techniques. Upon analysis, it turns out that the narrative technique of Shams excels those of the rest, better conforming to storytelling principles
