Expressing the Gnostic experiences and learnings through symbolic narrative texts have a long background. These texts due to exploiting the effective instrument for transferring the addressee from reality to objectivity and the narrator's mind guidance in the glorification manner provide the necessities of his/her transformation for separating from experiential ego and achieving the ideological world. In this way, Ghazzali's Resalato- Teir and Attar's Manteqo- Teir are two complete narrations with a masterful processing, which were written by a symbolic approach, which is indeed, a type of Gnostic epic that describes the heartfelt thought move in the form of adventurousness movement. In spite of the difference in the structure of both narrations such as: special attention of Attar to exploiting the intermediate narrations, using the primitive headings, explaining events and bringing on the stage the multilateral characters; consideration of Ghazzali to the joined narrative line, describing the unknown heroes and considering the maximum brevity in narration; the similarity cases of these two narrations are so important; as exploiting the viewpoint of “third person”, narrator as a whole wiseman and “travel” root in both narrations. Common feature is eventual distinction of travel; mobility, transformation and partnership of characters; and the indisputable governance of God (divine authority), which leads to the narrations having effective ability that is a solution of addressee's thought for moving from tangible to rational and determination to proof. Keywords: Comparative study, Narration, Resalato - Teir, Manteqo - Teir.
