Abstract:   (1701 Views)
The effect of Qurānic expressions and meanings are vividly prominent in poems of Bābā Afzal. Words such as “Same’nā”(means we hear) , “Ate’nā” (means we obey), “Rabbanā Zalamnā”(means we have wronged ourselves) and Qurānic expressions such as “everyone upon the earth will perish”, “everything will be destroyed”, and “there is no power except Allāh” have placed his quatrains high above. Furthermore, unique Qurānic concepts namely “the weight of trust”, “the falling of man”, “splitting of the moon”, and “permanency of the time of death” have immortalized his poems. It is noteworthy that poet directed this Qurānic verses and concepts to achieve special goals such as refinement, training, morality, mysticism. He assumed to avoid applying Qurānic expressions to display his poetic capability and knowledge. The present research aims at indicating the different types of Qurānic influences on Bābā Afzal. His intentions for the meaningful choices of Qurānic expressions and concepts are also elucidated. It is worth mentioning that great Islamic dictionaries don’t argue about the effect of Qurānic expressions on Bābā Afzal and his quatrains.
Keywords: Bābā Afzal Kāshāni, he holy Qurān, Qurānic Borrowing, Adoptation, Quatrains.
