One of the fundamental issues in the field of Quranic sciences, interpretation and, especially, in mysticism is the possibility of grasping the esoteric meaning of the Quran. There are some hadiths narrated from Infallible Imams (peace be upon them) about the esoteric commentary and expounding the inner meaning of some Quranic verses, but these verses are very few. So the question is whether we can grasp the esoteric interpretation and meaning of those Quranic verses with no valid narrated hadiths to discover their inner signification, with regard to the fact that there are limited hadiths on esoteric meaning and only about very few verses. The present paper seeks to prove the possibility (of mystical approach to the Quran) and elaborate on how the language of the Quran is expansible. To this end, intellectual and transmitted foundations (the Quran and hadiths) are provided while referring to the significance of the issue, particularly in present time, and to the role that authentic Islamic mysticism can play in confronting with newly-founded religious and spiritual movements.
