Investigating the Commentators’ Thought Process on Commentary of the Verse “Yet ye will not, unless Allah willeth”

Abstract:   (1724 Views)
The verse “Yet ye will not, unless Allah willeth” has been discussed and investigated in different interpretative and theological periods. For some commentators and theologians this verse points to “fatalism” and for some others it entails “human free will under the auspices of the Devine Will”. Semantic analysis of the verse with an emphasis on the commentaries reveals that the commentators’ inference from this verse has been different in different periods and been affected by the proposed theological and philosophical arguments within religious circles. During the early centuries, because of the limitations on theological discussions and commentators’ religious questions, the appearance content of the verse was merely dealt with, while during the middle periods, under the influence of the dominant theological progress, the public commentators observed the verse with a fatalism approach, though they attempted to find out a logic for human obligation. The most transparent interpretative view about the verse which is considered to be the peak of the interpretative thought maturity has been emerged in the commentaries of the 14th century and by taking inspiration from the Ahl ul-Bayt, they realized a clear statement from “One in the Middle of the Two Extremes”.
Keywords: Verse 29 Surah At-Takwir, God’s Will, Human Will, Fatalism, Free Will, One in the Middle of the Two Extremes
