The theory of multiple meanings in the interpretation of the Qur'an refers to an interpretive approach according to which the words and interpretations of the Qur'an contain various meanings and each of these meanings is valid in its place and one cannot be preferred over the other. But this approach is always faced with the question of how to combine the different statements of commentators? And will the sum of these sayings bring an interpretative result?
Tafsir Ain Alaayan written by Shamsuddin Mohammad Fanari which is dedicated to the interpretation of Surah Hamd and is a good model that clearly shows the quality of using multiple meanings in the interpretation of the Qur'an and its results.
In the interpretation of the words "Al-Hamd", "Rab Al-Alamin", "Yum al-Din" and also in explaining the difference between the two divine attributes "Al-Rahman" and "Al-Rahim", Fanari quotes various commentators' sayings and tries to achieve a broad meaning of the verses in order to It shows that the Holy Quran is an infinite sea of meanings. The use of polysemy means that this approach can tell the layers of meanings of the Qur'an that are neglected in the monosemantic approach.
