A "signifying ensemble" can be studied from two perspectives: in one hand from the perspective of "generative", which refers to the process of production and its schematization, and on the other hand  from the perspective of "interpretation", which refers to the structure of this significant ensemble . Semiotics of discourse refers to the both of these perspectives, because the discourse implies the process of utterance producing correlated to its structure. In this paper we have studied the discourse of Surat al-Qariah from this point of view. On method, this study is based on "tensive semiotics" (or tensive model), which is introduced in the post-Greimasian semiotics. First, the tensive model has been described in brief, second, the "tensive schemas of discourse" and "instance of discourse" as homologous analytical tools have been introduced. The tensive schemas represent intensive (emotive) and extensive (cognitive) valencies of the discourse, and the instance of discourse represents the trajectory of the discourse generation by two fundamental discursive actions: engagement and disengagement. In semiotic analysis of the discourse of surat al-Qāriah based upon the tensive model, it is depicted that the tensive schema of surat al-Qāriah is correspond with decadence model. But the the verse 10 is considered as an unexpected event in the discursive trajectory of the Surah: its ascending tensive discourse and the gegement discursive act in returning to the enunciative domain schematize this discursive unexpected event.
