The Semantic Components of the Word Infaq in the Discourse of the Holy Quran with a Focus on Syntagmatic Relations
Sayyideh Fatemeh Salimi 1, Sayyid Abdullah Esfahani, Fatemeh Hassannejhad
Abstract:   (321 Views)
Infaq” is one of the most prominent individual-social guiding principles of the Quran, which is referred to as financial piety as opposed to doctrinal and devotional piety. The high frequency of infaq verses in the divine discourse indicates its special importance to God, so much so that it has been mentioned as a way to save man from the inner diseases of the soul, such as miserliness, avarice, etc., and it paves the way for the purity of the soul. Based on syntagmatic relations, infaq co-occurs with many words in the divine verses. Relying on the descriptive-analytical method, the present article deals with the semantic components of infaq based on the positive and negative differentiation of elements while extracting some of the words which co-occur with infaq. The findings reveal that the word infaq co-occurs with some ethical and doctrinal concepts with positive emotional denotation such as faith, piety, benevolence, goodness, trustworthiness, lucrative business, etc., and creating semantic relationships at the sentence level, it forms such semantic components as practical faith, creation of personal and social security and health, theism, reinforcement of moral values, moderation, etc. Each one of these lexical relations denotes special meaning subtleties and literary imagery of infaq, and in turn indicates the coherence and cohesion of the words and meanings in the divine discourse, so much so that the lack of attention to the highlights in syntagmatic relations will reduce the precise and deep understanding of words.
Keywords: semantics, syntagmatic relations, semantic components, infaq (spending or giving to please God), the holy Quran.
