The symbolic attitude of the language of Quranic stories has been raised by modern thinkers such as Mohammad Ahmad Khalafallah. In this article, in an analytical-descriptive way, while pointing to the unrealistic approach to the language of religion and the historical propositions of religious texts in the Western world, the view of Ahmad Khalfatullah has been critically viewed firstly and, then, relying on the views of neo-Sadrian thinkers such as Allameh Tabatabai, Shahid Motahhari, Ayatollah Mesbah, and Ayatollah Javadi Amoli.  This view has been evaluated. Findings of the research show that the view of Khalafallah is in conflict with the  manner of those of reason and rational arguments such as the argument of wisdom and also is in clear conflict with the verses referring to the attributes of the Qur'an (such as Hakim, Aziz, Furqan) and the verses referring to the aims of the Qur'an. In addition, the stories of the Qur'an have both positive and negative attributes, such as the description of the truth, which negates the claim of Khalafallah on the stories of the Qur'an and clearly proves their realistic state.
