Abstract:   (445 Views)
In the last two centuries, Muslim religious dissidents have criticized and refined the Islamic heritage and claimed to fight against superstitions. The criticisms and arguments of a group called those of Qur'an,Quraniun, have received less attention from religious scholars. Since this group claims to fight against superstitions, many Shiite beliefs have been invalidated and rejected due to their conflict with the Qur'an, including the critique of the Imamate of the Ahl al-Bayt. Relying on several verses of the Qur'an, this movement has tried to challenge the theory of the Shiite Imamate and introduce it as a belief contrary to the Qur'an. As some of them claim, citing verse 165 of Nisa, that the divine authority of the Imams is in contradiction with the meaning of this verse; Because in this verse, God has introduced only the prophets as His proofs. As a result, the authority of the Ahl al-Bayt may not be taken as true. This article tries to examine the strength or weakness of quoting this verse in the critique of Imamate. This research indicates that this verse does not signify their claim in any way, and the misunderstanding of those called Qur'aniyun is the source of such a great error.
Keywords: Verse 165 Nisa, Theological Interpretation, the Authority of Ahl al-Bayt, the Why of Prophecy, the Meanings of Authority.
