Examining the commentators’ view on comparing the hereafter earth and the worldly earth with emphasis on verse 48 of chapter Ibrahim

Abstract:   (725 Views)
Comparing to the worldly earth, there are ambiguities about the nature of the Hereafter earth. The verse 48 of chapter Ibrahim "On the day when the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well] and they [i.e., all creatures] will come out before God, the One and the Prevailing”, has clearly talked about the difference between the two earths. The commentators have had different interpretations of the verse. Some have considered the change mentioned in the Qur'an as a change in attributes and features, and some have considered it as an intrinsic and substantial change, and some have spoken about the incomprehensibility of the type of change in question. The article at hand attempts to explain the current opinions, and given the common root of differences of opinion, puts forth a solution that resolves the disputes and removes ambiguities. Thus, by calling attention to the theory of substantial motion and commentary points developed by Mulla Sadra, it is possible that this transformation while lacking material properties, will not bring about a new system altogether.
Keywords: Scientific Interpretation, verse 48 of chapter Ibrahim, the earth, the hereafter earth.
