The issue of believing literal and inner meanings of the Qur'an, or in other words, the interpretation and esoteric interpretation of the Qur'an are controversial debates that the scholars of the Quran and Islamic sciences have paid special attention to them. Therefore, they held the principles and criteria for the mystical interpretation or the understanding of the deep and inner meaning of the Qur'an in order to prevent the heresy and the emergence of thoughts that are in conflict with the spirit of the Islamic law. In the present study three important criteria, including the relation between the literal and esoteric interpretation of the Qur'an, the lack of conflict between the esoteric meaning and the religious rules and the lack of conflict between the esoteric meaning with illuminated intellect, in inner interpretation of Qadr Surah have been investigated. The results of this study have shown that the inner meaning of Qadr Surah corresponds to the principles and rules of mystical interpretation.
