Abstract

 Esoteric meaning of the Quran has long been investigated by Shia and Sunni researchers. Although encountering some changes, esoteric interpretation of the Quran has more or less survived among Muslims. Along the history of IMAMITE interpretation, some interpreter s applied narrations of the Prophet's household in order to refer to the esoteric meaning of Quranic verses. But there are few books containing all these traditions. However, some non-Shia experts argue that “An Introduction to MIRAT-AL-ANWAR WA MISHKAT-AL-ASRAR” by Abul Hasan Sharif ‘Ameli Esfahani (12th century) might be “esoteric interpretation” written by Shia scholars. They consider it a significant reference which signifies Shia’s attention to esoteric meaning. The present article is an introduction to this book and its author, along with an investigation of the aforementioned claim. The results indicate that the author observes both exoteric and esoteric meaning of the Quran.Instead of being a complete esoteric interpretation of Quran, This work includes some traditions about the esoteric meaning of some Quranic verses. As the book is not so renowned among Shia scholars, it couldn’t be their interpretive reference. Meanwhile, this study has revealed that MIRAT-AL-ANWAR WA MISHKAT-AL-ASRAR is not an introduction to TAFSIR AL-BURHAN.
