The present paper seeks to review the Quranic verses on stoning Satans by meteors and reanalyze different interpretive views about the issue, proposed by commentators and thinkers. The paper reviews the view of different scholars and commentators such as Seyyed Qutb, Makarem, Allamah Tabatabaii, Tabarsi, Abdulali Bazargan, Tantawi, Nasr Hamed Abuzeid, and Soroush. Some commentators have implicitly interpreted these verses and others have reviewed the outer meaning of the verses and relevant traditions, relying on detailed specification. Some others have interpreted them on the basis of new cosmological theories. Still others have relied on probable and hypothetical theories. And others have proposed inner meaning for the verses and have considered them as simile and maxim. On the contrary, some commentators hold that these verses cannot be interpreted. Among these views, those regarding the verses as maxim are worthy to be taken into consideration and the view that interprets and justifies the outer meaning of the verses on the basis of new scientific discoveries in the field of cosmology seems more acceptable and correct.
