Iltifa't as a Source of Eloquence in the Qur'an for Changing Narration from Second to First Person

Journal Title: Journal of Religious Studies, University of Chitral - Year 2017, Vol 1, Issue 1


The holy Qur’an is an eloquent speech of Allah Al-Mighty delivered in the most expressive and unambiguous Arabic language. The Islamic Scholars ever since its introduction have been working sincerely on the Arabic Language and this love with Arabic language emanated from their attachment to the creator, so the holy Qur’an has always been the focus of attention and epicenter of many rhetorical discusses like Iltifat, while means interpreting some thing from one perspective and change it to another perspective i.e from first person to second or third person and vice versa. Some of the scholars denied the existence of "Iltifat" from second person to first person in the holy Qur’an. Tewenty-four examples of the mentioned type of "Iltifat" were given from the holy Qur’an proving the fact that this kind of " Iltifa’t" is used in the Holy Qur’an in certain places and in this way the research proves that the holy Qur’an is the most eloquent book of Almighty Allah using different rhetorical discourses like Iltifa’t.
