Al-Mizan Vol. 25

This volume contains the exposition of one complete surah, that is al-’Isra’ or Bani ‘Isra’il (111 verses).

The first and the most significant discussion of this volume is about the problem of justice. The issue is approached both philosophically and traditionally, and covers three sections.

Then, in the context of the verse “And come not near unto adultery. Lo! It is an abomination and an evil way”, the 32nd verse of the Surat Bani Isra’il, there is a discussion about the prohibition of adultery (hurmat al-zina), which is approached from both sociological and Qur’anic points of view, highlighting the detrimental effects of this act, studied and compared from different angles.

In the same way, other issues like that of the superiority of man over angels or vice versa, place of evil and its relation to the Divine destiny (qada’) homogeneity or necessary relationship between deeds and the doer also have been discussed with reference to the verse of the Surat Bani Isra’il.
