Abstract


THE CONCEPT OF CONTEMPLATİON (TAFAKKUR) İN ISMA?IL ?A??I AL-BRUSAWI’S RU? AL-BAYAN FI TAFSIR AL-QUR?AN

The word contemplation is widely mentioned in the Qur?an and is a concept that has an important place in religious literature. In the Qur'an, this concept is used with words with close meaning; people were constantly reminded of its religious and moral importance. If a person created by a perfect state is also a thinking being, it is also an indication that contemplation is an important power acquired by a person. In the verses of contemplation mentioned in the Qur'an, man is invited to act in line with this ability and it is often stated that he should take a lesson from the truth. In this way, man will develop himself in terms of faith and continue his life in order to be sırat-ı mustaqim. This direction will be instrumental in reaching all perfections with the spiritual states that a person will achieve as a result of contemplation. In this article, the concept of contemplation was examined in Isma?il ?a??i al-Brusawi 's work, Ru? al-Bayan, Brusawi 's approach to verses is considered from a Sufism point of view, focusing on the concept of contemplation in the world of thought. In work called Ru? al-Bayan, verses of contemplation were examined; Contemplation of some verses related to the sky, earth, plants and animals is emphasized
