Sam‘, baṣar and fu’ād in the Qur’an are the unique word. Sometime, these three words are mentioned stand alone in verse, sometime in a series. They mentioned in a series in six verses, there are An-Nahl: 78; al- isro’:36; sajdah: 9; mu’minun:78; al-ahqaf: 26; al-mulk: 23. In this case, the writer try to analysis the meaning of Sam‘,baṣar and fu’ād by applying semantic approach. According to this approach, there are two kinds of meaning; basic meaning and relational meaning.

It has some meanings, There are: 1) Sam‘ means hearing; 2) Sam‘ shows the activity of hearing; 3) Sam‘ means understanding. The basic meaning of baṣar means vision. And the rational meaning is divided in two categories. First, baṣar indicates the Characteristic of Allah. Second, baṣar that rely on the Humankind. It has some meanings, there are: 1) Baṣar means “the body part that use to see (eye) and its power”; 2) Baṣar means “the power of heart to reach something; 3) Baṣar means “ma’rifah and tahaqquq”;4) Baṣar means “teaching” (ibrah) ;5) Baṣar means “witness” ;6) Baṣar means “clear”; 7) Baṣar means “luminous”. Also fu’ād has basic meaning, the flame heart. While the relational of fu’ād is heart that being the place of ma’rifat and secret.
Sam ', Bashor and Fu’ād are expressed in a series revealed in 6 verses. Three of them have relationship meaning with grateful and responsibility. This shows the relation between the meaning of grateful, and sam‘, baṣar and fu’ād as well as responsibility. Human is commanded to grateful to Allah, because Allah gives Sam‘, baṣar and fu’ād as the favors to get knowledge. So, the way of grateful is to maximize the potentiality of sam‘, baṣar and fu’ād. Beside, everyone has responsible and accountable for their hearing, seeing and feelings in front of God who has given them their ears, eyes and hearts. This is the integrity and honesty of senses, heart and mind.
