The subject of this article is to examine the course of development of the Qur’ānic sciences and dividing these sciences into three types: 1. Sciences in the Qur’ān (‘ulūm fī al-Qur’ān); Sciences of the Qur’ān (‘ulūm li al-Qur’ān); Sciences concerning the Qur’ān (‘ulūm hawl al-Qur’ān). The subject of this discourse is the third type of the above. In continuing, several major issues are set forth, including: the scantiness of the writings by Shī‘a scholars on this issue in comparison to those of the Sunni scholars, although with superior contents; the necessity of taking a comprehensive look at the issue, i.e., examining the true and false matters in the course of history; and reference to the Qur’ānic collections, including: principles of the Qur’ān, main definitions and discourses, and finally the necessity of structuring in the Qur’ānic sciences.
