Abstract

Holy Quran consists of the words and phrases with multiple connotations. On the issue of multiplicity and variation in the meanings of the Qur'anic words, there are diverse approaches adopted by Muslim scholars. Some of the researcher believe that a Quranic verse can be interpreted in more than one way, this phenomena of interpretation is called “Zanni-ul-Dalalah”, while the other group of scholars claim that the Quranic verses contain a fixed interpretation and don’t have provision of any other meaning, this type of interpretation is called “Qati-ul-Dalalah”. In the nineteenth century, Hamid-ud-Din al-Farahi put forward another theory that every word, sentence, and verse of the Qur'an has a definite meaning, and no other meaning or interpretation is correct, so in his view point whole quranic text is “Qati-ul-Dalalah”. Tafseer “Tafheem ul Quran”  by Abu-ala –almawdoodi belongs to 1st category, i.e. Quranic verses may contain more than one meaning, while  Tafseer “Tadabbur-e-Quran” by Ameen Ahsan Islahi is written on “Qati-ul-Dalalah” approach. So the author has compared the both approaches & concluded that the claim of “Qati-ul-Dalalah” in Quranic verses is not correct rather than the view point of the majority scholars (Jamhor Ulama) is quite perfect. The correct concept of interpretation is that, “some of the verses are definite, but we can’t deny the importance of external references along with additional information which is seldom required to understand the complete sense of the verses”. Holy Quran consists of the words and phrases with multiple connotations. On the issue of multiplicity and variation in the meanings of the Qur'anic words, there are diverse approaches adopted by Muslim scholars. Some of the researcher believe that a Quranic verse can be interpreted in more than one way, this phenomena of interpretation is called “Zanni-ul-Dalalah”, while the other group of scholars claim that the Quranic verses contain a fixed interpretation and don’t have provision of any other meaning, this type of interpretation is called “Qati-ul-Dalalah”. In the nineteenth century, Hamid-ud-Din al-Farahi put forward another theory that every word, sentence, and verse of the Qur'an has a definite meaning, and no other meaning or interpretation is correct, so in his view point whole quanic text is “Qati-ul-Dalalah”.
