Mohammad Sharifi , Akram Hosseinzadeh
Abstract:   (827 Views)
The study of similar or ambiguous verses which has always won the attention of commentators is one of the important topics in the interpretation of the Qurchr('39')an. The Verse 172 of chapter Achr('39')raf is one of the similar and difficult verses of the Qurchr('39')an. According to the first interpretations which have heavily relied on narrations, this verse addresses the world of Zar.  This interpretation, however was later suspected or denied by the Muchr('39')tazilites and rationalist commentators. The present study while accepting the covenant world, examines the theories of mystics and philosophers, and the result of the research shows that the reasons presented by rationalist commentators on the denial of the world of Zar are not enough and are due to lack of knowledge of the self and its various levels. The transcendence of human soul, the collective or intellectual existence of human beings, the different levels of the soul that have different rules and conditions; can contribute in understanding the above-mentioned verse.
Keywords: The verse of Zar, the verse of [am I not your Lord], the mystical interpretation, the knowledge of the soul, the forms of existence.
