The Divine Speech: A Linguistic Study of the Quran

Posted · Add Comment


The study of language and its rhetorics instigate extensive inquiry into the linguistic facet of the Quran. This study aims to identify defining features which showcase the profound literary nature of the final revelation. Ranging from simple analyses of vocabulary and sentence structures, to unique exclusives of the Arabic language, there are many gateways to understanding Allah’s words, all through the lenses of language.

Apart from minute yet intricate attention to details in presenting knowledge, the Quran is also a paragon in organizing knowledge. Anyone who glances through the content of the Quran could very easily dismiss it as a mess. A thorough study coupled with some deep contemplation will prove otherwise.

Distinctly coherent, the Quran challenges hearts and minds to think beyond barriers, shedding light on the relevance and correlation of knowledge, beyond just its native application.

Join us as we unearth the linguistic masterstrokes of the Quran, and instill greater appreciation for the divine text that shapes our faith.
