“Ulul al-bāb" is a special expression in the epistemic and moral system of the Holy Qur'an which describes outstanding servants and believers. The commentators in the explanation and exemplification of this term have different opinions, including the owners of reason, the owners of the full rationale and the owners of healthy intellect. However, by reflecting on the verses that highlight the attributes of "Ulul al-bāb ", we find that the commentators' views are not complete. According to the findings of the research and also according to the verses context, “Ulul al-bāb " is one who understands and receives the noble divine teachings at its highest level after divine prophets and saints, apart from any impurity and temptation. In addition to recognize the right and false, they choose the best way in the direction of divine obedience, while at the same time they are rational and praisers people and they are gifted by wisdom. Therefore, interpreting Ulul al-bāb to the wise men means to ignore all aspects of their personality; while Qur’an mentioned remarkable features for Ulul al-bāb, according to which such individuals have a full intellect in both theoretical approaches and scientific attitudes and have reached the peak of the maturity of the practical intellect in the course of action.
