Intertextuality, which deals with the relationship and the interaction between texts, is one of the newest theories in new criticism, According to this theory, texts and their producers are influenced by each other and they consciously or unconsciously use the literary and intellectual origins of each other. It has long been common among Persian poets and writers to use Qur’anic concepts and teachings to add credibility and richness to their work. The literary and rhetorical aspects of the Qur’an along with the Qur’anic ethical concepts and teachings, have created the attraction of such attention. Tarabol Majales is one of the works of Persian prose belonging to the eighth century, which is one of the most considerable periods due to the
influence of the Qur’an and hadith as well as Arabic literature on Persian literature. Using Qur’anic ayahs and hadith, the author of the book, Mirhossein Heravi, has been able to write his book containing ethical and informative points. Throughout the book, one can see his familiarity and fondness of the Qur’an, religious and mystical teachings. The present descriptive-analytical paper aims to analyze this feature by using Gérard Genette's method of analyzing intertextuality. The results show that there are two types of explicit and implicit intertextuality in Tarabol Majales and Heravi has employed explicit intertextuality more frequently and in the form of adapting from Qur’anic ayahs in various forms and for different reasons.
