Comprehensiveness of the Quran is one of the important foundations for its comprehension and interpretation, which has been noticed and considered by old and new commentators. Among the commentators who have seriously raised the issue in their commentaries, we can refer to Allamah Tabatabaii and Alusi Baghdadi. The studies show that although Alusi devotes a special chapter to this issue, he is in a kind of astonishment and fails to free himself from the questions and doubts which come to his mind. That is why we see him moving towards a minimal view in some parts of his commentary and towards a moderate or maximal one in other parts. The review of Allamah's remarks, however, shows that the only acceptable view for the comprehensiveness of Quran is moderate comprehensiveness in his view; he rejects and criticizes the other viewpoints. The present paper comparatively studies the view of these great commentators in this regard.
