Abstract

‘Abdul-Ḥakīm Bihjatpūr is among the contemporary Qur’ān scholars who have turned to revelation-order-based exegesis, publishing a book on its basics, rules, principles and benefits. The current study aimed at the criticism and investigation of the revelation-order-based exegesis from the viewpoint of Bihjatpūr, using library research and the descriptive-analytical method, in order to show that although it has been admirable to integrate these principles and some of them such as verbality of the language of Holy Qur’ān is right, some other suggestions such as the claim that the text of the Qur’ān written by Imām ‘Alī (a) is based on the revelation order are not so strong.
