Abstract: 
The three expressions of muhkam (explicit), mutashaoih (ambiguous), and tawll (hermeneutic interpretation) are Quranic terms and since long ago Muslim exegetes have had different views concerning thier meanings and extensions. In his Taf\1r al- mlz71n, Muhammad Hossein Taba1abai refers to 16 views concerning the meaning of muhk{l/n and mutashabih and disagrees with all of them. Instead, he poses the 17th view without referring to any criterion in this regard. This article does not intend to offer a new interpretation of this verse, for this issue is a secondary study. Put in other words, by studying the epistemic foundations of each exegete concerning those verses on God, the author tries to show their relationship. The conclusion of this research is that those who believe in tanzlh (declaration of incomparability) theology, consider the tanzin:i verses of the Quran as-- explicit and the tasnl51hiverses as ambiguous. On the contrary, those who believe in tashblhl theology consider tashblhI verses as expilicit and tanzthtverses as ambiguous. Both parties try to interprete ambiguous verses in a way to be in harmony with expilicit verses so as to bring about uniformity in the geometry of their epistemic views.
