Abstract:   (4370 Views)

After the death of the holy prophet of Islam and the tendency of some scholars having books to Islam and Israelism,stories and legends of Ancient Greece and Jewish sources entered into the  interpretations of Muslims and from there into the literary books; these myths included Harut and Marut myth.

The look of Quran to this myth is different from the most interpretations;Quran’s view is that Harut and Marut have been sent to the earth for teaching magic to people and being protected against the sorcerers, but the interpretation texts have seen the entrance of these two angles as a response of the angles to humans.

Rumi has used all the components of Masnavi story. In Masnavi literature, we are seen the diversity of understandings from Harut and Marut story. Maulana use of this story, whether in speech or in understanding, are wholly affected by existing stories, not the Quran.
