What does “the i’jaz of the Quran” mean?
It is said that "Quran has the miracle of "i'jaz", so it is impossible to be imitated". What does it properly mean?
The I’jaz (being impossible to simulate) of Quran is Such a Miracle That it Precludes People from Inserting or Omitting Anything
I’jaz literally means people’s being impotent and incapable of providing a similar of something. There is a wonderful eloquence and stylistic purity in the Qur’an’s word order. The arrangement of the verses and the letters of The Quran is mutually interconnected in terms of meter, rhyming, order and composition. It is, infact, like the system formed in the clock counting the seconds, the minutes and the hours and completing each other’s order. Similar to that the sentences of the All-Wise Qur’an, and its words, and the order in the relationship between the sentences and words complete each other’s order. And an excellent harmony and entirety exist and are observed in the formation of each sentence,word and even letter. Thus, even if a letter of the Quran has been changed or deleted,the excellent harmony would be disturbed and if such a distortion had occurred, it would be impossible not to be noticed.
Not only the words, letters and verses but also the meanings they give are interconnected and form completeness. For example in some pages, a verse is the evidence of the next verse and the result of the previous verse.
The Qur’an’s wording is extraordinarily fluent and pure. One proof of this is that the Qur’an does not bore the senses but rather gives them pleasure even if it is recited thousands of times.
Quran addresses to each century and each human level among the society. As an eternal discourse addressing all human beings regardless of time or place and level of understanding, it should - and does – have a never-fading freshness.
Quran express lots of meanings with few words. Its phraseology is marvelous, unique and convincing.
Quran preserves its youth, freshness. In every other century Qur’an becomes younger, in that the more technology develops, the better the miracles of the Qur’an are explained and uncovered. Because Allah (swt) informed us about anything in the universe.
“With Him are the keys of the Unseen, the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record clear (to those who can read).” (Al-An’aam, 59) Kaynak: http://askaquestionto.us - What does “the i’jaz of the Quran” mean?
