Abstract

This paper is an attempt to explore the rhetorical remarks in the secrets of rhetorical proportionality that recur in Al-Kahf Surah and the miraculous methods between the opening and concluding expressions. It also examines the Qur'anic discourse to recognize the intended meanings and what they aim at in this surah relating the beginning to the conclusion of the surah and to analyze the Qur'anic meaning through the context in which Al-Kahf Sura occurs by exploring its rhetorical language and relating both the opening and the conclusion together with the rhetorical intention by adopting an analytical rhetorical method on the ayas (verses), subject of the study. These ayas (verses) represent the most rhetorical aspects that match with the ultimate intention. This is evident from the Sura's title implying that the sura is like a perfect circle; the opening of the sura and its relation with the end is like a defectless circle in regard to the rhetorical intentions and subjects of the sura
