Abstract:   (358 Views)
Al-Mushakalah is one of the most influential yet unknown Embellishments among Figures of Speech investigated in literary-Quranic studies. However, considering Nahj al-Balaghah, not significant attention has been paid towards al-Mushakalah, and limited examples are mentioned in related books. Given that Al-Mushakalah leads to a Metonymic usage of the word al-Mushakil, we should put extra attention into translating to avoid confusion. After gathering Mushakalah’s usage in Nahj al-Balaghah, the present study has put the examples into six categories and then reviewed 25 Persian translations with high accuracy and delicacy in meaning. This investigation shows that Feyz al-Eslam has the best performance, with 53.84 percent accuracy, giving the intended meaning in parenthesis after telling the literal meaning. Arfa, Shariati and Faghihi, with 46.15 percent accuracy, stand in second place. Ostadvali and Hojjati's translation comes in third place with 38.40 percent accuracy. the sixth-century Translator with 7.69 percent accuracy and Shirvani with zero percent accuracy have the least proper performance, which in regards the first translator, it is a result of Literal translation of this Embellishment, a disturbing method in conveying the intended meaning.
