In Tamhīdāt, (Preludes) written by Ayn-al-Quzāt Hamadānī, many Qor’ānic verses have been quoted. Some of these verses have widely been cited. Due to his familiarity with Qor’ān and deep reflection on its verses, Ayn-al-Quzāt presents unique and brilliant interpretations of the Holy Qor’ān. The present research seeks to answer the question: What methods of interpretation have been used in Tamhīdāt? The results show that Ayn-al-Quzāt gets from expression to meaning by using these methods: interpretation based on homonymy; metaphorical interpretation of the Qor’ānic expressions; finding synonyms in the same semantic field; interpretive cluster, associative interpretation, syllogism by equation, going beyond the historical meaning of a Qor’ānic verse, the interpretation of a verse based on Hadith; and the interpretation based on the mystical concepts. With a descriptive-analytical approach, the present research studies the method of interpretation in Tamhīdāt along citing the examples. Also, in some cases, an interpretation is compared with other mystical interpretations of Ayn-al-Quzāt's contemporaries. Ayn-al-Quzāt uses the mirror allegory in analyzing poems, so it can be said that according to him, Qor’ān, as a text, refers to various worlds reflecting the views of its reader.
