A Critique of the Scientific Interpretation of the Seven Heavens and the Earth in Verse 12 of chapter al-Talaq
Seyed Hossein Karimpour
Abstract:   (1710 Views)
One of the many controversial issues among commentators is the subject matter of "Seven Heavens and the Earth". Some commentators while having a scientific approach quoted various sayings about Verse 12 of chapter al-Talaq and applied it to the material worlds and celestial spheres, but such an interpretation does not seem to have helped to dispel the ambiguity of the verses, but only added to the problem. The present study is conducted in a descriptive-analytical way and have a critical approach to the issue. The author examines the vocabularies and structure of the verse semantically, and based on the narrations of the Infallibles (AS) and the thinkers' theories, draws the conclusion that what can be meant of "Seven Heavens and the Earth" are not the material world only; rather, the entire worlds and the different levels of existence, which run by divine will and prudence, are meant. So, to impose scientific findings on "Seven Heavens" is a futile attempt and the basis for many other ambiguities. This article has explained them.
Keywords: Verse 12 of chapter al-Talaq, Scientific Interpretation, Seven Heavens, Seven Earths, different levels of existence.
