An Introduction to the Literary & Linguistic Excellence of the Qur’an


Many historians, scholars, and writers do not contend that the Qur’an has had a huge impact on history – just as it does in global politics today, being an authority for billions of Muslims – and so the reason for this timeless influence should be understood. It is the purpose of this article to show how the Qur’an can be described as a new genre of speech and literary masterpiece. Rational arguments that substantiate this and the Qur’an’s inimitability are presented by Muslims to argue the conclusiveness of their beliefs to a world in constant need of proof. This article intends to contribute to the growing interest in the Qur’an’s message as well as its literary power and will highlight the Qur’an’s ability to convey key concepts and messages in the most profound way, a way that is described by the most experienced Arabic litterateurs as inimitable and unmatched throughout history.

  1. Salamo alaykum wa rahmatallahi wa barakato

    I wanted to let you all know about an annual Qur’aan residential dawrah that is based in Riyadh (Ahsan al hadith). It is one of the best courses that I have been involved in alhumdulillah and they have an excellent program that will help you memorize some Qur’aan as well as revise what you know before. This course is for people from all levels so don’t worry about how little Qur’an you might know. I wanted to love for my brother what I love for myself and tell you about it as I think you might truly benefit from this.

    How the online program works is you will have your own customized personal daily program that is suitable according to your time and ability. Every day you will have a small Skype or Paltalk session with the residential Shiekh anytime you like from 4.30am – 7.30am or the second session from 4pm – 9pm (KSA time) to recite to him what you memorized during the day (it doesn’t matter if it is half page, 1 page or even a few ayahs). He will then record your daily achievement as well as help you with perfecting your recitation and tajweed. After 4 weeks you will achieve a recongnized certificate.

    The course just started and it is not too late to enroll. It will end on the 25th June inshallah – perfect preparation before Ramadan!

    Shiekh Abdul Dayam Ammar has over 17 years of experience teaching the Quran to students from different levels from all over the world. He has ijaazat (Licences) in the 7 Qiraa’at that he has earned during his ten years of studying in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, from among them are Shiekh Ahmad Khalil Shaheen, Shieh Al Sayed Al Sanad. Currently he is a supervisor in the organization of memorization of the Quran in Riyadh as well as a Trainer/instructor for Qur’an halaqa teachers and administrators in Saudi Arabia.

    If you would like to join simply reply to me with your Skype ID and we will arrange for you a quick meeting with the Shiekh where you can start with him as soon as possible.

    Jazakallah khier for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
