Abd al-Qaher al-Jurjani sees the literary miracle of the Noble Qur’an in its precise arrangement, where the vocabulary is very precise in choosing and leaving its synonyms, so the words are in complete harmony in pronunciation and meaning. Then the sentences of various types are in complete harmony with each other in terms of wording and meaning, with full observance of the rules of grammar and the foundations of rhetoric, and each of the aesthetics of pronunciation and meaning in the service of the context of the noble verses. Then Abd al-Qaher Ma interpreted the Holy Qur’an based on his theory, so we studied four specific verses from Surat Taha in the light of his theory by taking advantage of the descriptive-analytical approach. So, through our analytical study, we concluded that the vocabulary in the noble verses is based on a dialectical dialogue between Pharaoh and the sorcerers in very sobriety, with some intensity in concepts related to the threat of Pharaoh with torment. Then the methods of emphasizing verbal meaning completely take into account the need to take into account the situation. Among the prominent methods are deletion, mention, and repetition in disapproval of mention, and mention of the interview or repetition of pleasure. The sentences are short, keeping in mind the brevity of both types, to meet the dialectical dialogue status. And each of the masterpieces of systems, verbal and moral, in the service of the overall context of the noble passage.
