One of the most important topics of functional linguistics is the theory of textual coherence, which looks at the factors that link the elements and components of the text. Through a set of tools, the text makes a cohesive, coherent and cohesive unit. We try, through the descriptive-analytical approach, to study and analyze the pronoun referral of Surat Al-Raad and the extent of its use in the coherence, coherence and harmony of the Surah text. One of the most important findings of the research is that the pronoun referral of all kinds effectively contributed to achieving movement and rotation between the verses of Surat Al-Thunder and performed an important function in achieving textual coherence between the parts of the verses by returning the referring word to the referent, and that the reference in the studied surah was used a lot in a way A tribal text, just as the pronouns referring to God Almighty and His Noble Messenger, and the infidels and the believers are many; Which indicates a clear indication of the apparent consistency and textual coherence of the text of the surah, and the frequent use of local pronouns to God, the Prophet and the believers indicate the insistence on affirming and emphasizing Godliness and morality, just as all references to the infidels came in general before the text.
