Creator Qazanfari, Ali

Heydarbeygi, Soleyman
Description From the very beginning of its revelation, the Qur'an has always been considered by Muslims and non-Muslims due to its important place in Islam. For this reason, from the beginning of the descent until today, it has always been the subject of discussion among scientists and researchers around the world                                Orientalists, who have always considered the Qur'an as a book born of the thoughts of the Prophet (PBUH), have criticized the Qur'an by expressing the flaws and inadequacies that they see in the Qur'an. Most of the Orientalists' material on the miracle of the Qur'an is related to the literary miracle, which has raised doubts about the eloquence and rhetoric of the Qur'an, as well as the contradictions in the Qur'anic expressions. One of these problems is the discussion of the literary miracle of the Qur'an. Orientalists by expressing such things as dry and unpolished prose; Repetition of stories and phrases; The confusion and lack of thematic connection between the verses of these cases has been considered as a reason for the lack of literary miracle of the Qur'an. In this article, with a descriptive-analytical method, while responding to the criticisms and problems of Orientalists, it has been proved for various reasons that it is one of the most important miraculous aspects of the Qur'an from a literary point of view. And all the issues raised by Orientalists are due to the lack of accurate translation and unfamiliarity with the culture of the Qur'an, as well as the lack of attention to the specific system of verses and verses of the Qur'an.
