عنوان مقاله [English]
Layered semiotics as a theoretical perspective that underlies a kind of applied semiotics, by relying on its theoretical foundations such as the study of syntagmatic relations, codes, and intertextuality, provides the basis for extensive analysis of texts such as the Qur’an that are within the context of interactive and multidimensional relationships between sign systems. Drawing on the science of layered semiotics, this descriptive-analytical research analyzed the codes of Surah Al-Masad in order to determine their implicit meanings and reveal the multiplicity of meanings of the semantic layers from their syntagmatic and intertextual relations with them. The research came to the following findings. The action codes show the actions of these characters, which has led to humiliation and fire. The actions are shaped by the only hermeneutic-enigmatic code of the surah that refers to Abū Lahab's wife. Other codes, such as cultural codes, indicate the historical document of this event, and semantic codes signify the attributes of hell-dwellers and their humiliation, while symbolic codes point to the role and interaction of marital relations that with their complementary and illuminating role emphasize not preferring the personal relationships to the rules, inefficiency and eternal losses of the fighters against the path of the truth and the uselessness of wealth and power against the wrath of God
