AbstractIn the three chapters, we discussed the interpretation inner according to the Ismaiilism since it is one of their Pillars and a center of their doctrine. They believe in the inner and outer. It is a path they follow to reach their goals, defeat their opponents, and spread their doctrine. They believe the Propher Muhammad (May Allah grant peace and honor on him and his family) is the Speaker , that is he was concerned with the rites and outward shape of religion, the inner meaning is revealed by the Imam. That means the Imam knows the inside of the doctrine and the inner meaning of Quran. They disbelieved anyone believes the outer without the inner. They worked to establish their thought in a philosophical acceptable way ; rarely found, in order to spread their doctrine to guarantee the acceptance of their thoughts in a community where thoughts and doctrines became a center for debates.
The Civilization during the Abbasids Era opened new prospects by the mixture of cultures in the Islamic World that time. The Ismaiiilism connected their doctrine with the Interpretation accusing their opponents with ignorance to know the outer without the knowledge of the in inner. They wrote to defend and confirrn their doctrine. Their opponents found it an opportunity to pour their anger on the Ismaiilism; accusing them and their doctrine really and void.
The Interpretation; according to the Ismaiilism is different from Explanation; a concept known by many of the Islam groups, means translationg a word or a phrase/ sentence in the language while interpretation is the inner or hidden meaning of the core of the word.
