عنوان مقاله [English]
The word “Tur” is mentioned at least ten times in the Quran and it reminds us of its sanctity, which makes the events that have taken place there important. But apart from the meaning of the verses and their importance, there are hadiths from the Infallibles (as) that equate the place of the “Tur Sinai” with “Ghari”, despite the fact that, given the fame of the place of Sinai in the opinions of geographers and commentators, and the books of historians, there remains almost no doubt that Sinai is not in Kufa. Now, considering this clarity in knowing the place of Sinai, the question is why in the hadiths of the Infallibles, Sinai is mentioned as the equivalent of the burial place of Imam Ali (as)? The purpose of raising this issue is to investigate the cause of such a strange event and to know its dimensions. Therefore, this article, adopting a citation analysis method, in addition to using the existing library documents, has also referred to geographical maps, satellite images, and archaeological documents. Through examining this issue, it is understood that equating “Ghari” with Sinai, in addition to making the high status of Imam Ali (as) more recognized by the Muslims, can also lead those Christians and Jews who unbiasedly seek knowledge and understanding to know the holy existence of this unique figure, and that means inter-religion peace and friendship.
