The Meaning of Explicit and Ambiguous in the Seventh Verse of Surah Al-Imran

Abstract:   (3650 Views)

According to verse 7 of Al-Imran, the divine verses are divided into two groups: explicit verses and ambiguous ones. The first type makes the base and majority of the verses and there are two arguments about the second type: they are considered as pretext for malevolent sedition finders and interpretability; therefore, explicit and ambiguous arguments are required to be analyzed. The paper has mentioned different responses of the Quran researchers and commentators then criticized all of them and finally it has proposed the best viewpoint in this regard. To the author’s viewpoint, explicit and ambiguous arguments include: text or emergence of the explicit verses is indicative of their true meaning while the ambiguous ones are inexpressive in relation to the purpose of the glorified God when they are enjoying emergence and pureness from any ambiguity, abstractness, lexical and semantic complexities. This statement is clarified by virtue of the internal guidelines of Surah Al-Imran.

Keywords: Verse 7 of Al-Imran, Explicit Verses, Ambiguous verses, Ambiguities
