The Purpose of Ratiocination and its Impact on Text Construct from the Viewpoint of the Author of Adwa' Al-Bayan fi Idah Al-Qur'an bil Qur'an: A Jurisprudential-Syntactic Study
The present research investigates an important problem in the human history in general and in the legislative history in particular: ratiocination and its purpose in text construct. Ratiocination is a to-convince tool used to interpret religious or social phenomena. In other words, it helps the reader to become hopeful and confident, where the more he perceives the relationships in a text (i.e. causes and effects, and precedents and results), the abler he will be to interact with an epistle. Accordingly, the Islamic legislation, while considering targets' circumstances, have ratiocinated many of its judgements. The Qur'an is the primary source of the holy Sharia and there are clear-cut occasions where it ratiocinated the judgements to convince the readers. In this research, we investigate the purpose of ratiocination and its role in and impact on text construct from the viewpoint of a jurist-syntactician, given that this person has a deep understanding of the analysis and ratiocination of the Qur'anic provisions. We aim to achieve the purpose of the study by shedding light on the interpretation of this commentator from the Qur'an, in an attempt to uncover the methodological tools that he relied on in ratiocinating the text.
