The life of the earth from the perspective of the interpretation of the Holy Quran
Mohammad Abbaszadeh Jahromi
Abstract:   (1972 Views)
The Holy Qur'an has attributed life to earth in several verses; The present article seeks to explain the meaning of these ascriptions. Therefore, at first, the writer tries to find out the acceptable attitude towards life, given its foundations in the views of philosophers. To him, the explanation and fundamentals of transcendent theosophy seems to be the most appropriate option in this regard. In the meantime, Allameh Tabatabai's view in Al-Mizan is considered the best definition for life and with its help he interprets the life of the earth. According to some commentators’ view, the attribution of life to earth is virtual, but it seems that one can literally ascribe physical life to the earth by verse 5 of Hajj and 39 of Fussilat. In this sense [yet when We send down water upon earth, it stirs and swells], vibration and inflation provide the life process of the earth after the rain falls on it. In addition, with the help of some narrations of Ahl al-Bayt (progeny of the Prophet Muhammad), a new meaning of spiritual and esoteric life can be achieved, which will be considered a new example for the levels of earthly life.
Keywords: verse 5 of chapter Hajj, verse 39 of chapter Fussilat, Life of the Earth, Scientific Interpretation.
