Of the Meanings of Place in the Stories of the Quran (Surat Al-Kahf as a Model) (in Arabic).

Auther : Abdulmeneem Megawer

This study attempts to reveal some of the meanings behind the concept of place in Surat Al-Kahf, as it is considered to be a unique example of storytelling in the Holy Quran. The paper focuses on the concept of place, its role, effects and connotations. The paper also examines the role of the following elements: the relationship between place and other elements of narration, the meanings of place as they appear in the text and its structure, and the spatial polarisations that reveal the role of place. The diversity of the spatial polarisations and how often they appear in the stories of Surat al-Kahf create a sense of suspense that ensures the reader or listener does not lose interest in the Surah. The multiple places in the stories of Surat al-Kahf, their diversity, presence, and absence are subjected to the requirements of the events of the story and its goals, which depend on "a plot." The plot connects the parts of the story to convey the religious message. It also connects the various places in a cohesive manner. Thus, the places of each story are joined together, while the places of the four stories of the Surah are grouped together in one semantic thread. The study also sheds light on the religious purposes and the artistic vision of the use of place in Surat Al-Kahf in an attempt to reveal the impact of the presence or absence of place in the narrative’s structure of the Surah’s stories. Both the presence and absence of place serve a purpose.
