Styles of Quranic Rhetoric and its Arts, Surahs: Al-Ahzab, Saba and Fater as a model

Aya F. Abdelaziz, Ramadan K. Abdel Tawab


This research studies the styles of Quranic rhetoric and its impact on highlighting the surahs themes and meanings. By analyzing the surahs topics, the role of the Quranic rhetoric becomes very clear in confirming the verses meanings, probing their depth, and revealing their purposes.

The research discusses seven Quranic rhetoric methods: the appending, the verses end, the appropriateness of the Quranic word to the context, Quranic intuition, the reciprocal ellipsis, predicate conditions, and the deviation. Examples of these stylistic variations were studied from Suras Al-Ahzab, Saba, and Fatir. The diversity between the Meccan and Medinan surahs, was considered. Moreover, there was a comprehensive bond that unites the three surahs; it is the establishment of the correct belief, and a reminder of Allah’s blessings upon his creation. The paper discussed the surahs topics and themes, by understanding the Quranic text, and the proportionality between the three surahs. The investigation and analysis prove that the Quranic linguistic has a great effect on elucidating the meanings and clarifying the divine purposes.  The research recommended expanding the study of the Quranic rhetoric and arts and linking them to the verses meanings to clarify the divine purposes.
