Nizar A. Al-Dmour, Omar A. Al-Sa’oudi


This study aims to analyze the Quranic similes in Parts Twenty-ninth and Thirty of the Holy Quran as they contain 48 Surah from a total of 114 Surah, with a percentage of 42%. They are Makkan Surah except for four of them (Surah Al-Insan, Surah Al-Bayyina, Surah Al-Zalzala, Surah An-Nasr(. The study consists of two topics; the first one addressed the theoretical aspects of the term, the importance of simile and its role in clarifying the intended meaning. The second topic addressed the applied aspects by collecting, studying, analyzing, and examining the close linguistic meanings of similes, up to demonstrating their beauty and comparing them with other similes in other places in Quran. For this purpose, the researchers used the two tools of textual approach; description and analysis as the approach used in this study.
