The location of taking the covenant in verses 172 and 173 of Chapter Aaraf from the perspective of Allameh Tabatabai and Ayatollah Javadi Amoli
Ibrahim Kalantari, Hamid Reza Shamloo
Abstract:   (393 Views)
Verses 172 and 173 of the Chapter Aaraf -known as the verses of the Covenant- are among the most complex verses of the Quran in terms of interpretation. One of the main issues in the interpretation of these verses is the whereabouts of the Covenant. In other words, where has this divine covenant, the contents of which are the divine lordship and the servitude of man, taken place? and where is the scene in which the question of "أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّکُمْ= Am I not your Lord" and the answer "Yes" has occurred? The commentators have long expressed different views about the location/place of the Covenant in these verses; For example, Allameh Tabatabai considers the heavenly kingdom as the place of the Covenant, but Ayatollah Javadi Amoli has criticized and rejected this view and considered innate nature [Fitrat] as the place of the Covenant. This article seeks to show, after interpreting the views of these two commentators, that the account that subscribes to the heavenly kingdom as the whereabouts of the covenant is more compatible with the Qurchr('39')anic and theosophical principles, and that all other locations formulated by the commentators, can be finally referred to the two celestial and terrestrial worlds.
Keywords: Verses of the Covenant, the location of the Covenant, the heavenly kingdom, the innate nature.
