One of the levels of the infallibility of the prophets is the infallibility of being enchanted in the soul and mind by the others. The surface meaning of some verses of the Holy Quran implies the enchantment of divine prophets, such as verse 66 of chapter Taha:
«قالَ بَلْ أَلْقُوا فَإِذا حِبالُهُمْ وَ عِصِیُّهُمْ یُخَیَّلُ إِلَیْهِ مِنْ سِحْرِهِمْ أَنَّها تَسْعی» .
The surface meaning of this verse may make one interpret it as indicating that Moses (pbuh) became enchanted in mind by the magicians. If this implication is true, it would be an evidence of the non-infallibility of the prophets in this area, and this has invalid prerequisites that are in conflict with the theological beliefs of Shi'ism. Hence, the present paper carefully studies this verse in terms of theological and rational interpretation and implication, and verifies that although the verse implies the effect of the magic of magicians in the eyes and mind of Moses (pbuh), it whatsoever does not imply his being enchanted by them and their seizing control of his wisdom and soul. Moreover, from the rational point of view, it is necessary for the prophets to be infallible and safe from being enchanted in soul, intellect and beliefs.
