Narration (rewayat) is considered as the second source of lawmaking in Islam and has significant role in the interpretation of the Holy Quran. Narrative may be used explicitly, emphatically, or institutionally; but its importance is more based on speculation than until the document and its meaning have been confirmed, so there is many discussion about the narration in terms of authenticity and weaknesses of the document. The category of interpretation (commentary) seeks to prove the truth in most verses of the Qur'an; therefore, many of interpreters believe in that suspicious news is not valid in interpretation. Some interpreters also criticize the narration through the text of the Quranic verses; Therefore, narration is one of the most important methods along with the Holy Quran. Allameh Tabatabai was one of the interpreters who paid attention to the narrative approach in interpretation. At the same time, and considering the importance of this discussion, in this research, the interpretive method of Allameh Tabatabai in interaction with the narrative has been studied. In order to search for Allameh Tabatabai's narrative approach and his methodological justifications and some applications of interpretive method in interaction with narration. Some of the most important issues studied in this study to explain the interpretive approach in interaction with narration that uses narrative as a tool and Introduces a reliable tool for interpretation and the Holy Quran is introduced as a witness and maintenance. In the meantime, Allameh Tabatabai can be considered as one of the real defenders of the narration to the extent that he considered some evidences of the supposed narrations in the interpretation of the Qur'an and change their importance from conjecture and suspicion into knowledge and awareness. In addition, Allameh Tabatabai followed an approach that was rooted in the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt in solving the confliction problems among narrations; Therefore, Allameh Tabatabai's approach in making the rules of interpretation is referring to the narrations of Ahl al-Bayt.
