The present article is to study the written legacy of Fatimid Shiites in Egypt concerning the narrative sciences. Narration is considered as the most important foundation of propagation of religious and biological sciences. Since, relying on it, the divine instructions could be transferred to his servants. Maybe the mystery of attention of all the religions, heavenly sects and religions to the narrative sciences in the propagational and instructional activities is this very point. Fatimids, the followers of Ismaelite, were not exceptional in this regard and they were active in a variety of branches such as: jurisprudence, interpretation, history, poetry, literature and the other narrative sciences. Fatimid’s written achievements are not considerable in this regard and they were not of noticeable novelty concerning the jurisprudential issues and due to the intellectualism and internal approach, they did not leave considerable compilations in relation to the science of recitation and interpretation. Nevertheless, their particular attention to the narrative sciences whether with the purpose of preserving their political existence or the propagation of Ismaelite sect is deserved to be reviewed. The present article reveals that Fatimids could entirely circulate the narrative sciences through the illustration of an appropriate structure along with the hardware and software aids.
