عنوان مقاله [English]
The meaning of the word "Falaq" at the beginning of Falaq Surah has long been a point of contention between the Qur'an commentators and translators. The effect of difference of a word perception on difference in the concept perception of the whole context; especially in small contexts is obvious. The present article has been done in order to examine the meaning of this word by examining the commentators’ opinions of the two sects and their reasons for the word "falaq", as well as their analysis. Commentators have three main views on this word meaning; some think "Falaq" means morning, some creation, and others as a place in hell. Each group has presented reasons and testimonies for its own point of view; but according to the findings of the present article, the reasons and evidences presented by the first and third views have some drawbacks and "Falaq" in Falaq Surah means creation; because this interpretation is more compatible with the context of the surah verses.
