Being brief, allusions are used by the general public and enjoying figurative meaning, poets and writers often use them to avoid explicit and direct expressions. Because allusions are image-making and create suspension in the receivers' minds, they possess a privileged status in literature and poets have utilized them greatly. Abd ar-Rahmān Jami is one of the orators and writers who took a particular approach to allusions as important and useful tools of expression, so that he articulated most of his speech using allusion. In this study, we investigated the functions of the Qur'anic allusions in Divan of Jami, trying to specify the relationships between allusions used in this Divan and allusions and allusive expressions in the Holy Qur'an and thus to shed light on the similarities of this figure of speech in the Holy Qur'an and in Divan of Jami. The findings of this research indicate that in his employing allusion, Jami was influenced by the Qur'an in three ways: A) using Qur'anic allusions exactly as they are; B) giving an allusive meaning to the Qur'anic word or expression, hence creating a new allusion ; C) using the same Qur'anic allusion in a new allusive sense.
