"Critical discourse analysis" consists of theories and methods for empirical
studies of relations between discourse and social changes. Critical discourse analysts believe that literary texts, just like the other texts, are in the service of comunication. Therefore, they can be analyzed with critical approach and attitude. In this study, the sentences, phrases, and the components of circuit discourse items, in the story of "Ahle Saba va taaghi kardan neemat ishan ra", of the third volume of Masnavi, has been investigated with the descriptive - analytical approach. The result of this study shows that Mawlānā besides making use of his vast knowledge of formal science, mysticism and Persian and Arabic literature, has taken advantage of discursive reproduction order, in order to expand his spiritual dominance over his disciples. Mawlānā,s success (in using discoursive reproduction order) is so great that power discourse in Masnavi is quite natural and harmonic with mystical thoughts which provides the necessary ground for the transformation of the mystic discourse by his successors.
