Keywords: The Holy Quran, Propositions, Aesthetics, Rhetorically Review


The Holy Quran has been used different expression styles at a very high level. Among the things that have caused rhetorical aspects in the Qur'an are the Propositions. The present article attempts to rhetorically review the aesthetic aspects of the prepositions. Priority and delaying of prepositions can be done for purposes such as inclining, chant, shortening, restriction, assignment and so on. The elimination of prepositions is an example of literary highlighting and syntactic norm of escape and it creates rhetorical and aesthetic speech literally. The rhetoric justifies justify the reason for using prepositions in a virtual sense based on the Embedded metaphor.
