This article aims to reach knowledge of the meaning of the Quranic abdomen and the extent of its understanding and levels of understanding among Al-Alamain Tabatabai and knowing and standing on the difference between them and we reached in it the following: First, the meaning of the Qur’anic abdomen according to al-Alam al-Tabatabai and knowledge. According to the scholar al-Tabataba'i, the Qur’anic belly is the realistic truth on which the Qur’anic statements of judgment and exhortation are based and that it is not a concept that is inferred by words, but rather a concrete matter that transcends it to be surrounded by words, but God restricted it by restricting words to bring it closer to our minds as he went to define the abdomen with authentications The general meaning of the verse, which is called running and application. While the scholar sees knowledge that the Quranic abdomen is the general or secondary meaning of the verse, which she deduces from the verse by exempting the specific aspects of the verse and its circumstances that make the verse specific to the source of its revelation. Secondly, both al-Alam al-Tabataba'i and Maarifa al-Muarifah went on to say that the Qur’an belly is understandable, but they differed in their perception of what is meant by the Almighty saying: {And those who are firm in knowledge} which is from verse 7 of Surat Al-Imran and does he know interpretation besides God? In that verse to appeal the evidence of the verse issued and mentioned his evidence that supports his opinion, while the scholar went to know that the waw is for kindness, not for appeal, due to the necessity of wisdom that requires opening the door to knowledge of the Book of God in all his sciences and knowledge and mentioning his evidence, which among them is (the rule of divine kindness). Third, both Al-Alamein Tabatabai and Maarifa went to the fact that the Quranic abdomen is multi-ranks and that one of the reasons for the multiplicity of the levels of the Quranic abdomen according to Allama Tabataba'i is according to the ranks of his family and their positions and the different moral purity of those who walk. An immortal, universal public message.
