Abstract

This paper analyzes the possibility of discursive language as media for explaining religious as well as mystical experience and how discursive language has position in the experience. This paper is based on Iqbal’s thought of religious experience as the main study as found in his masterpiece, The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam. Qualitative-descriptive method and philosophical perspective on language were used to elaborate problems of religious and mystical experience in order to find the solution. The result of study shows that there are two aspects that must be considered to understand religious and mystical experience. The first is language of religious or mystical experience which discusses the religious or mystical experience as something uncommunicable, untransformable, and unconceptualized. The second is language about religious or mystical experience which discusses the religious or mystical experience as something communicable and conceptualized through discursive language.
