Al Sarfah

Auther : Dr. Sami Ata Hassan

Research outline:

Al Sarfah terminology meaning is that “God turned the Arabs” away from imitating the Quran since they had the capacity to do that, this opinion is one of the strange rejected currents which invaded us from the outside. Ibrahim Al Nazar one of “Alm Al Kalam” philosophers firstly stated this opinion and hereby de declines the Quranic miraculous ELEQUONCE and placing Quran in the same level of metaphorical speech denying any specialty for Quran in this issue over other kinds of speech.

The scholars of Islamic nation replied on his opinion showing its foolishness, illustrating that the Arabs were fascinated by the eloquence of Quran and that there is no more or less comparison between their words and the words of Allah. In this respect we must refer to two fact:

The first fact: is that Kurish despite its sever hostility to the Prophet “May Allah Peace And Bless Be Upon Him” and that Quran disgraced their parents and showed the falsehood of their idols, they couldn’t move to imitate Quran because it’s unique metaphor and diction that surpass their capacity. However the Quran put a challenge before them to imitate the shortest verse in Quran, but they kept on avoiding such imitation for not showing their deficiencies and their absolute defect. Instead they become hostels for the Prophet, waged war upon him and the result was that many souls, money and relative relations were devastated. So if they knew that it was in their capacity to imitate Quran they would have avoided such hardships and would take the easy way.

The second fact: The metaphor, miraculous diction and eloquence of Quran in addition to its aphorisms, stories narrated both in long and short from including lessons of the pervious nations all these aspects draw many Arabs to enter Islam because they recognized the miracle of Quran, that surpass the human capacity. Therefore, from here we say that Sarfah is a false saying even if it was adopted be group of scholars, because “FACT” is not drawn from men but through accurate deduction. Quran has self-miraculous drawn of its style, meanings, eloquence and metaphor the aspects that made the Arabs look high to the eloquence and diction of Quran. If they were really turned from its imitation by God they would have admired Sarafh instead. If they were deprived from their metaphorical skills there would have been difference in their speech before and after the challenge and between Quran. So Sarafh is False.
