Abstract:   (1249 Views)
It is possible to understand the divine purpose and the commentators’ difference of opinion serves as evidence for this fact. The present study is to eliminate doubts from verse 67 of Surah Yusuf (AS) and choose the favorite point of view. The study is conducted in a descriptive, analytical and narrative method, and tries to highlight the Shiite and Sunnite exegetes’ views in this respect. The main question of the article is to figure out the reason for the order of Yaqoob (AS) to his children that they have to enter Egypt through different doors and separately. The verse 67 of Surah Yusuf has briefly dealt with the issue. The result of the research is coming up with five to eight views developed by the Shiite and Sunni commentators. The view that faces least disagreement is Yaqoob ordered his children to enter Egypt from different door so that there should be no hurdle in reaching Benjamin to Yusuf.
Keywords: Verse 67 Yusuf, comparative interpretation, the reason for the separation of children
