Abstract: 

Mystical interpretation is one of the interpretative ways which is based on preconceptions like mysteriousness of revelation and of the religious language, the necessity of discovering the intention of the qur’anic verses, and paying attention to the spirit and truth of a reliable remark. In other words, the most important bases of the mystical interpretation are the realization of the inner meaning and the heart of the speech. Muslim philosophers and mystics have used the mysteriousness of the religious language in order to discover the inner meanings of the qur’anic stories or to find out the hidden aspects of the religious texts through the “narrative hermeneutics”. This study, based on Ricoeur’s principles, examines the characteristics of the narrative hermeneutics with a descriptive-analytic methodology in the works of the Muslim philosophers and mystics. The results show that the narrative hermeneutics offers a new reading in this respect through a new approach to religious narratives. Moreover, ,its characteristics of possessing mystery and, multi-meaningfulness, and the realization of inner meaning result in new meaning invention as well as the language strengthening. Meta-historicity and timelessness plot a new arena that converts the natural-mathematical time into the human time which is eternal; in this manner narratives no longer belong to certain people and cultures but they can rather travel into other worlds and times. Studying these narratives and stories in the mystical interpretation indicates that their main purpose is not to transfer simple, superficial meanings but rather hidden, unknown meanings. The narrative hermeneutics can thus help decode multiple-layers of meaning.
