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.
