Abstract:   (985 Views)
The Quran is the last scripture and the miracle of the seal of Divine prophets. The miraculous nature of the Quran is manifested in the exterior and the interior of this holy book and the contents of its verses. Although some invaluable books have authored on the verbal inimitability of the holy Quran, most scholars and researchers have been focused on the eloquential inimitability of Divine verses, and they have been less concerned with the marvels of the Quran in the field of prosodic meters and rhythm. Perhaps, one of the reasons for this issue is that the pagans of the time of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) claimed that the word of revelation was poetry and the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) was a poet. This claim has made many Quranic scholars, including Jahiz, stand up against any kind of poetic figure such as meter and rhythm and deny them through reasoning in analyzing the linguistic system of the Quran. This is while verbal meter has various forms and every rhythmic language cannot necessarily be considered a poem. Explaining some specifications of rhythm and rhyme in the Quran, this paper offers a description of the linguistic system of the revealed book.
Keywords: the Quran, rhythm of the Quranic verses, inimitability, Jahiz, linguistic system.
