Özet

Expressions of similitude are important Quranic concepts in terms of understanding intangible concepts related to belief, deed and ethics more simply and deeply. Issues that are difficult to comprehend are vivified via examples of natural and social life by representative expression in verses. With this aspect, expressions of similitude drew attention of many tafseer scholars and researchers. However, in the literature of Shia-Imamiyyah commentary, some Quran issues have been reviewed as political and denominational. Some Shia-Imamiyyah interpreters referred to Imamah, walayah, Ali, Fatima, Hasan, Huseyn and imams -if the topic and main characters of similitude expression were positive- but if not positive, they referred to the first three Chalips, Muaviyah and Omayyads. This interpretation style has problems regarding the method rules. In this study, these kinds of problematic interpretations were examined about interpretation methods. These problems are generally accumulated on the integrity of Quran, narrative, language, history, method and social relations areas.
