In order to perceive the meanings and importance of the words of Allah, the Muslim scholars have done their very best to keep and understand the rich and poetic classical Arabic language in both of its forms; prose and poetry fully taking care of its original state and good condition. Classic Arabic is more important as it plays its role as a store of linguistic tools for understanding the Holy Quran and Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (S A W) Abu Abdullah  Al-Qurtabi (d.671) a famous commentator of the Holy Quran quoted on many occasions from Arab poets in his tafsir work “Al- Jame Le-Ahkam-e-Quran” to explain the meaning of certain words and phrases used in the Holy Quran. This article discusses and explains the rhetorical beauties of some of those verses along with their linguistic analysis and treatment explanation.
