We encounter two types of verses in the Qur’ān; the verses that concern the conveying of the call to Truth and monotheism to the ears of the public and giving an ultimatum to all people on earth; and the verses that denote its not reaching the ears of those living in a number of towns and human dwellings.
Now, although we believe in and trust the exoneration of the Revelation of any contradiction, then what is the source of such a contradictory impression about those series of Qur’ānic verses? What have the interpretations done to solve this Qur’ānic problem and how far have they fared in this respect? Have they done justice to this issue and given convincing answers to the contemplators?
An inquiry into the interpretations reveals that some attempts have been made sometimes to solve this problem; but, as a thematic method has not been adopted, the desired result has not been achieved, and much likely they have ended up with fanciful assumptions.
This article seeks for a thematic interpretation of the verses in question in order to find a worthwhile answer to this problem; an answer that may be of interest to the Qur’ānic researchers.
