A critical study of Wahhabism interpretation from verses that deal with declarative attributes

Abstract:   (1227 Views)
Some verses of the Holy Quran ascribe attributes to God, the Almighty. This ascription has led to similitude and embodiment. The nature of these attributes has been one of the constant concerns of Quran scholars from the beginning of the spread of the knowledge of interpretation until today. Having these concerns in mind, the commentators have interpreted these verses according to their beliefs and theological schools of thought. Research findings indicate that there are two mainstream ‘rational’ and ‘literal’ approaches in regard with the declarative attributes; Wahhabism belongs to the second approach and they consider their opinion as an original Islamic view and others' views as heretic. The Shiite scholars have criticized the Wahhabis' view and by referring the ambiguous verses to the unequivocal ones, giving precedence to rational reasonings over narration-based accounts, making use of the verbal and affirmative connotations in understanding and interpreting the relevant verses. They believe in the theory of "proof by interpretation", "objectivity of attributes and essence" and the theory of "purification". Given those three theories they interpret the declarative attributes.
Keywords: Theological interpretation, declarative attributes, simile, embodiment, Wahhabism.
