Kerāmāt and Realities: The Kerāmāt Anecdotes and the Type of Reality
Article Type:
Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

The theme of most of the Sufi anecdotes is the Kerāmāt (miracles) of the Sheikhs (elders). A large volume of mystical memoirs and biographies and some other Sufi texts can be included under the title of “Kerāmāt Anecdotes”. These anecdotes have always been the subject of acceptance or rejection by various groups of their audience. Determining the type of reality in these Kerāmāt anecdotes and classifying them under a particular view of reality is one of the most important issues surrounding these anecdotes. There are several ways to accept the Kerāmāt anecdotes, but the best and most comprehensive way that the author advocates in this paper is the analytical realism of Kerāmāt and the attainment of a type of mystical or Sufi realism. Those who neither submit to devotional acceptance nor are themselves in the path of mysticism to attain the truth of Kerāmāt by means of discovery and intuition, can arrive at a level of acceptance of Kerāmāt with the help of specific analyses. However, in the realistic analysis of Kerāmāt, there is no reduction or limitation in the phenomenon. The present descriptive-analytical library research seeks to identify the type of reality in this particular narrative in order to prove that the reality of Kerāmāt anecdotes is not equal to any existing or familiar reality and as a result these anecdotes need their own specific realism.
