Summary/Abstract: Sufi interpretation of the Qur’an, called also the allusive interpretation,fundamentally differs from other interpretations primarily because it does not rely on the tradition nor does it base its perception on the horizontal level. Other interpretations are exoteric (outer) and they are based on the tradition, that is, on the letter of the text and letter of history. Sufi interpretation is the inner or esoteric interpretation of the Qur’an. This interpretation rarely reaches for something outside the Qur’an itself and for its goal has the unveiling of its eternal message, unchained by time and space, and discovering of its depths and shades of meaning.
