The Noble Qur’an is unique and is superior to other speech by its wonderful link between sound and significance. Ancient and contemporary scholars were aware of this, and it became clear to them that the sound is a mainstay in the construction of the Qur’anic expression, and they proved the relationship of sounds with meaning, whether those sounds were singular such as vowels such as the alpha and ya, or consonants, or they were compound sounds that support each other to indicate the meanings of their similarity in the adjective.

)Ibn Jinni) expanded on the phonetic semantic issues referred to by the previous ones, deepened their rooting and enriched them with unquestionable examples. From the events, and from here the concept of (sound problem) was born, a term for the hidden link between sounds and their connotations.

In this research, a brief presentation of the sounds of the word and its similarity to its meaning, and scientists monitored this similarity. We dealt with this in various fields, opposite or compatible, with what is prominent from the verses extracted from the Noble Qur’an, and the search for (the expressive value of the sound) is not limited to single sounds only; Rather, the researchers monitored the audio elements transmitted in the text, which by their intimate connection dominate the structure of the noble verses, giving them another facet of significance, which is not guided by any other than this audio monitoring.

In the verses of empowerment and obedience, the Holy Qur’an used a set of words in which the voices meet the events that express them, and they echoed the atmosphere that dominates the sentence or the text. The researchers presented a group of those verses in which the phonetic similarity appears, and the effect of those problems in strengthening or intensifying the significance.
