The Qur’an is the word of Allah, it is the most eloquent and best of all speech. The Qur’an uses different theoritcal devices and parables to convey its message. Allah conveys to us facts, stories and examples as well as guidance and warnings throughout his book.
Allah says in the Qur’an: We have given every type of parable in this qur’an so that they can understand and think. This beautiful book will take twenty-eight parables and aphorisms in the qur’an and explain their context and meaning in order for us to understand, reflect and change our lives.
