The idea of ‘history repeats itself’ in the interpretive thought of Allameh Tabatabai with the focus on verse 214 of Baqarah
Ali Mollakazemi
Abstract:   (340 Views)
The concept of historic recurrence implies that events from the past nations can become events of the present nations as well. The current article seeks to explore this notion in the interpretive perspective of Allameh Tabatabai. Studies show that verse 214 of chapter Al-Baqarah in Allamehchr('39')s interpretive thought is the most prominent verse that indicates the repetition of history. Allameh Tabatabaichr('39')s citations to the mentioned verse in various interpretive and theological positions show that he considered the initial interpretation of the verse in question as a general concept which corresponds to the semantic meaning of the narrations of "= حذو النعل باالنّعلlike two peas in a pod". Hence, the writer of the article, being inspired by the above-mentioned verse and citing the related narrations, gives examples of ‘history repeats itself’ including the spiritual distortion of the Qurchr('39')an, the return of the Ahl al-Bayt (AS), the descent of torment on the Muslim nation, the split of Muslims and the confusion of the ummah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH and his progeny).
Keywords: Verse 214 of Baqara, repetition of history, divine traditions, similarity of nations.
