Abd al-elah Ibn Arafa is considered one of the novelists in the Eastern Arabic with a distinguished vision of writing. All of his narrative works seek to express and express this vision in a unique way. His novel Bahr Noon was a new and unusual work in the contemporary Arab narrative, as it was woven from references, the most important of which are history and mysticism, and all of this led to the formation of a narrative structure of a new type. The narrative narration in Bahr Noon's novel follows the historical paths of life and existence, and the mystical journeys of the cosmic spirits. This research, with its descriptive and analytical approach, tried to shed light on the second path, i.e. mysticism, and studies the mechanisms of Sufi narration and its manifestations through its intellectual and aesthetic dimensions represented in language. The study also talked about the Sufi symbols used in the novel, especially the literal and numerical symbols. In the end, the study concluded that Bahr Nun's novel derives its intellectual reference from the historical and mystical heritage, led by the idea of Muhyi al-din Ibn Arabi in the existence of human existence and the absolute divine self. The events in the novel proceeded in a continuous interaction with this idea. The study also revealed the parallelism of the Sufi narrative spaces in them to enrich the narrative structure. The narrator's invocation of religious figures in different scenes of the novel came in line with the epistemological focus, and with the aim of imparting poeticism with new connotations to his text. Finally, the research revealed that the narrator employed a wonderful Sufi lexicon in his text, along with numerical and literal symbols, and geometric shapes with mystical connotations, all of which came in continuous interaction with the narrative structure.
