Ahqaf Waxing Eloquence in Historical Process of Exegesis


ISC (18 صفحه - از 9 تا 26)

Terms and names mentioned in the holy Quran can be more or less eloquent in various historical ages in the position of reference determination. As a general basis for encountering texts, the primary expectation is that some terms or names mentioned in the holy Quran, which had clear and coherent references in early Islam, faced ambiguity in this respect due to, perhaps, gradual moving away from that era. It is not unexpected that the Companions and their followers were aware of the meaning of the term or named a name, but gradual moving away from the early time lead to decrease in lucidity (or, transparency) of the term or the name because of losing the context. A reverse case is unexpected, i.e., a term or a name faces ambiguity in reference finding in early Islam but later encounters lucidity problems concerning its reference. It seems that such an increase of eloquence has happened concerning the term Ahqaf. Perspectives of early Quranic commentators are far from lucidity and full of disputes, while lucidity of that name is increase in later centuries, ambiguity of its reference being decreased. On this basis, the study of Ahqgaf can be a ground for achieving a proper criterion for study of such an event in the historical process of exegesis.
