One of the important issues concerning the Hereafter is how humans will be repaid for that they do in this world. The holy Qur'an and traditions explore this subject in various ways. Many scholars and commentators consider that the verses of Qur'an and traditions alongside the rational reason in favor of the theory of the survival of the soul and the interaction between the act and soul confirm theory of embodiment of deeds in the Hereafter. 'Allameh Tabataba'i, a contemporary and wise commentator of the Qur'an has paid special attention to this issue. Resting on the aforementioned arguments and proving the theory of embodiment of deeds he pints out to the important theological functions which this theory suggests. The most important functions of this theory are, proving the Divine justice repaying for the deeds and showing the cause for the immortal life in hell. This study states the proofs which confirm the theory of embodiment of the deeds and explains the functions of this theory in the light of 'Allameh Tabataba'I's viewpoint.

Key Words: 'Allameh Tabataba'i, The theory of embodiment of the deeds, Theological functions, Deeds.
