Semantic Domain: Personality/character disordersegotist—Narcissistic

One of the personality disorders is Narcissistic egotist: somebody with an exaggerated sense of his own importance, especially somebody who tends to speak or write about himself or herself excessively. If he feels he is obstructed or ridiculed, he can have a fit of destructive anger and revenge which can have disastrous consequences for all involved.

The text of Grand Qur'aan has par excellence structuring that renders the irreducible semantic features of its vocabulary explicitly evident. One الصفة المشبهةadjective resembling participle stemming from this Root is used as adjective in adjectival phrase. It is a noun derived from an intransitive verb in order to signify the one who establishes an action or state with the meaning of permanence. It thus manifests the character of a person.

  • Has the Divine message - Reminder placed before him, grandly selected from us all?

  • Nay, actually he is a egotist - conceited liar." [54:25]

  • [the Messenger was informed] "They will know tomorrow who is really the egotist liar. [54:26]

This is an excerpt from the narrative of civilization Sa'mued. Members of ruling elite were talking to common people and were subtly indulging in character assassination of the elevated Messenger Sa'leh [alai'his'slaam]. They questioned people with reference to his proclamation of divine revelation that were he the only illustrious out of them all to be presented the divine message. Without awaiting response, they negated this proposition, and instead declared him: - an adjectival phrase, first is a hyperbolic noun signifying a person who frequently lies and qualified it by ; thus the phrase signified a egotist - conceited liar.

Allah the Exalted informed Sa'leh [alai'his'slaam] about their slandering and that by tomorrow they will come to know who actually is the egotist - conceited liar.
