Fictional elements are components that are cast in a certain format to move in an orderly and harmonious manner and to achieve an intellectual goal. Plot is one of the most important of these elements. The plot in real stories of the Holy Quran - with differences in quantity, quality and method of application - can be identified, analyzed and evaluated. Therefore, in the present study, the story of Prophets Adam (PBUH), Ibrahim (PBUH), Davoud (PBUH), Hood (PBUH), and Mary (PBUH) has been studied relying on the plot pattern of "Larry Way" and using descriptive-analytical method so that some of the artistic effects of these stories is reveald. The findings of this article indicate that the plot of all the mentioned stories is based on a causal relationship and in such a way that the story has a clear beginning, middle and end in any way it is told. All stories have a desirable structure and special processing in adhering to the aspects and elements of narration and storytelling, from the introduction to denouement, crisis-making, conplication and ending; In such a way that a unique type of storytelling has been created by using an artistic texture and a strong and pleasant structure along with paying attention to vivid and dynamic illustration, honest staging and relying on reasonable causal relations. All stories have a proper and natural plot. Another point about the plot and actions of the stories is the appropriate selection of the most important events and the avoidance of longevity. As sometimes a very complex situation is expressed in the shortest possible sentences.
