عنوان مقاله [English]
Most Islamic thinkers agree that the Holy Qur'an uses the language of metaphor in describing abstract concepts, especially those related to the afterlife. According to the traditional interpretation, metaphor in Qur’anic verses has been used to facilitate the understanding of these concepts and the beauty of discourse. In contrast, according to conceptual metaphor theory, in addition to understanding abstract concepts, metaphors are used to produce the message and purpose of speech. Therefore, by cognitive analysis of the Holy Qur'an metaphorical expressions, the message hidden in these expressions can be achieved. The results of the study of verses related to the afterlife from the perspective of cognitive semantics and data analysis based on the theory proposed by Lakoff and Johnson (1980), show that the afterlife placiality, the verses' expressive structure based on motion and the verses' expressive structure based on the movement and statistical results of the origin and destination areas in the verses are the reason for human life continuation in these worlds in order to receive the necessary capacity to reach the destination through changes and transformations. Also, the realization of the goal and the destination adaptation to the origin in the human movement course are some other messages of the studied verses metaphorical expressions.
