Paying attention to the semantic types of interpretive narrations has not been seriously considered by Qur`anic scholars since decades ago. Although the ancients themselves have made admirable efforts and research in compiling interpretive narrations, they did not point out the diversity of narrations. Therefore, in this study, we try to examine the interpretive narrations and their typology from Sheikh Saduq`s viewpoint. The findings of the research showed that many of the narrations presented in the study were in the form of question and answer that the companions had problems in understanding and asked questions from the Imams and Ahl al-Bayt. In most of his commentaries, Sheikh Saduq expressed the lexical meaning, simile, and complete instance, and through this method, he tried to introduce and interpret the narrations. Based on typology, these narrations are divided into two main categories; evidence-based narrations (general adaptation to complete honesty, explaining meaning using instance, conceptual meaning, and expression of complete example) and conceptual narrations (words, semantic development, semantic substitution, semantic contrast, and simile). So, the typology of these narrations can pave the way for a better understanding of the verses.
