Intertextuality examines the relationships between texts. Because in every text there are references to earlier works. It can be said that there is no new and original text. In intertextuality, two texts are compared: a text below and a rough text. Genette divides intertextuality into three categories, which can be examined in the form of the explicit, implicit, and implicit presence of one text in another. In this article, the authors first explore the roots of Rumichr's mystical anecdotes and thoughts in the first book of Masnavi in mystical, fictional, interpretive works, Davin poetry, and Arabic historical books. Then he divides these anecdotes into three categories based on Genetchr's theory of intertextuality. At this stage, the following text of Masnavi is specified. This text below should have both chronological and historical precedence over other texts and should be most similar to Masnavi's narration. This study shows that Rumi had read many Arabic historical, interpretive, fiction, and mystical books before him and brought them to the margins of Masnavi. However, in all the cases studied, he has changed mystical thoughts and previous anecdotes to achieve his mystical, theological, and moral goals. Meanwhile, Ibn al-Farid and al-Thalabi are more present in the first book of Masnavi than others in the field of mystical theories and anecdotes.
Keywords: intertextuality, intertextual reading, Rumichr's Masnavi, Arabic works.
