Abstract

 Sufis and Ismailians are two social upheavals which share a common feature in thought that is interpretive attitude and profound inward understanding. Considering the INTERPRETATIONs of these two groups one can find discrepancies in both arenas of theory and practice.in theory, the fundamentals of thought of ISMAILIYA are based on rational understanding whereas the perspicacity of sufis and mystics is based on conceptual understanding. Moreover, ismailians believe that their INTERPRETATIONs are based on imam s teaching while sufis INTERPRETATIONs are based on personal experience and immediate underatanding. In practice, SUFISM view towards the world is based on heart and conceptual attitude. So it seems that their INTERPRETATIONs are in a state of flux, because heart experiences different states. ISMAILIYA, though, does not look at the cosmos, as sufis do, in a way which gives a narrow INTERPRETATION to its states. Besides, ISMAILIYA interprets the text with its own specific presuppositions. So their INTERPRETATIONs approach hermeneutics while SUFISM does not involve its personal interests in the process of INTERPRETATION but waits for the time. On the one hand. SUFISM INTERPRETATIONs are based on linguistic understanding. On the other hand, as ISMAILIYA looks at text employing hermeneutics, its INTERPRETATION is not linguistics.
