قرآن مجید میں ”أمثال کامنہ“ کی حیثیت
The Status of Latent Proverbs In The Holy Quran
The Holy Quraan is a Paradigm of Elloquence and a sublime model for rhetorical standards.The worldly life would not be sufficient for the knowledges inferred from this heavenly book.Paremiology ( the study of proverbs ) is one of the prominent influential topics of the holy Quraan whereas it has been one of the main Topics of almost all Heavenly Books.This Research article entertains the questions, Are there General Proverbs and Sayings in the Holy Quraan other than the Special Quranic Proverbs? How many Types of Proverbs are there in the Holy Quraan? Can those verses be declared as proverbs that are used just like proverbs in daily life conversations to deal with the situations? and on. The general Quraanic Proverbs (Amsaal) are somewhat distinct genres of the holy quran for its unique theme and scenic structures. The context of verses in which these proverbs revealed have clearly contains the word ‘‘Masal” and that is why it is called (Amsaal az zahira). In contrast there are some special “Proverb like” verses (Sometimes full verse and sometimes partial) having the quality of currency and transmission (الذيوع والإنتشار) without containing the word ‘‘Masal” used in daily life conversations just like the idiomatic expressions and proverbial sayings which are called Latent proverbs( الأمثال الکامنة) and have been declared as General Proverbs by some of the Literary Scholars.The aim of the study is to add to the clarification of the ambiguity and to uncover the position of those Proverbial Verses to be treated as “Sayings” and “proverbs” frankly in daily life and also in the Literary Works.
