Miserliness (bukhl) has since early times been broached in the verses of the Qur’ān and traditions and also in such fields as philology, ethics, and mysticism. These fields have each, in turn, tried to present a meaning of it. Although the concept of bukhl has the same semantic principle in all disciplines, there is a big difference between the Qur’ān and traditions and other fields in determining its semantic evidences. The present article is an attempt in determining the semantic evidences of the word bukhl from the perspective of religion and tries to portray the conceptual differences of this word in view of religious text with its application in Arabic language, which would lead to achieving evidences that fit into the concept of bukhl only from the viewpoint of religion. Furthermore, it would arrive at a positive connotation, which, contrary to its lexical use, would attribute to this word only in its narrative concept and indicates that the relation of these two fields of the concept of bukhl is absolute generality and peculiarity.
