The Islamic Texts encompass numerous terminologies having multiple interpretative explorations, needed to be coincided for explicit conceptualization. Sometimes, there is a probability of establishing correlation between multiplicity found in narrations, whereas in other cases, the rule of preference is applied. In this research paper, various interpretations of two celestial terms which exhibit the heavenly places in Islamic texts, will be discussed in detail. One of them is the Quranic term “Bayt al-Ma‘mūr” and the other is a narrative term “Bayt al-‘Izzah” used in the narrations of the Quranic Descent. Here, meanings of both the terms (lexical and terminological), variant explanatory accounts attributed to them with conclusive statements will be presented.
