عنوان مقاله [English]
There are many controversies among theologians, philosophers and exegetes of the Qur'an on how revelation comes down. One of such efforts is Mulla Sadra's view in which he makes use of demonstrative reasoning, religious texts, and mysticism as a general method in order to present an explanation compatible with the apparent meaning of religious texts. He considers five phases for revelation: immediate, intellectual, imagined, sensory, and natural revelation for holy prophet, and sensory and natural for people. In his view, when the angel of revelation comes down to the prophet it does not mean that he abandons his place, rather he manifests himself while the prophet is elevated high, as well. There are a few objections raised to Mulla Sara's view and explanation answered by the authors after the meaning and phases of revelation have been explained.
