The theory of isometric mappings originated in the classical paper  by Mazur and Ulam in 1932.
Mazur-Ulam theorem Every isometry f of a normed real linear space X onto a normed real linear space is a linear mapping up to translation, that is, is linear, which amounts to the definition that f is affine.
The Mazur-Ulam theorem is not true for a normed complex vector space. In addition, the onto assumption is also essential. Without this assumption, Baker  proved that an isometry from a normed real linear space into a strictly convex normed real linear space is affine.
Gähler [3, 4] introduced a new approach for a theory of 2-norm and n-norm on a linear space. Chu  studied the Mazur-Ulam theorem in linear 2-normed spaces. Recently, Moslehian and Sadeghi  introduced the Mazur-Ulam theorem in the non-Archimedean strictly convex normed spaces. Moreover, Mirmostafaee and Moslehian  introduced a non-Archimedean fuzzy norm on a linear space over a non-Archimedean field. In particular, Amyari and Sadeghi  proved Mazur-Ulam theorem under the condition of strict convexity in non-Archimedean 2-normed spaces.
In 1984, Katsaras  and Wu and Fang  introduced the notion of fuzzy norm, and also Wu and Fang gave the generalization of the Kolmogoroff normalized theorem for a fuzzy topological linear space. In addition, fuzzy n-normed linear spaces were studied by Narayanan and Vijayabalaji; see .
In this paper, we investigate the notion of non-Archimedean fuzzy 2-normed space over a linear ordered non-Archimedean field and prove that Mazur-Ulam theorem holds under some conditions in the non-Archimedean fuzzy 2-normed space.

Clearly, and for all . An example of a non-Archimedean valuation is the function taking everything except 0 into 1 and ; see . We call it a non-Archimedean trivial valuation. Also, the most important examples of non-Archimedean spaces are p-adic numbers; see .

Definition 1.3 Let X be a linear space over a field with a non-Archimedean valuation . A function is said to be a non-Archimedean fuzzy 2-norm on X if for all and all ,

Definition 1.6 Let and be two non-Archimedean fuzzy 2-normed spaces. We call a fuzzy 2-isometry if for all and .
Definition 1.7 Let X be a non-Archimedean fuzzy 2-normed space, and let a, b, c be mutually disjoint elements of X. Then a, b and c are said to be collinear if for some real number r.
