Bent al-Shaty is a contemporary prominent Egyptian scholar who is well-known for her theory on the expressional miracles of the Qur'an. As the most distinguished contemporary scholar,she has denied the existence of synonymous words in the Qur'an and considered it as one of the cornerstones of the expressional miracles of the Qur'an. To her, the Holy Quran is the main criterion to determine the exact meaning of the words and to separate them from their synonyms. Relying on this criterion, she explains issues raised by NafiibnAzraq seemingly very successful in distinction of synonymous words so that her method can be utilized as a helpful example by researchers. Despite of all her efforts, she has failed in some cases. The present paper introduces the theory and the methodology used by Bent al-Shaty in rejection of any synonym of the words. She has been criticized from four perspectives: 1) inability to explain some differences between synonymous terms; 2) some meanings unknown for the Arabs that the Qur'an was revealed in their language; 3) expressing some useless differences in the interpretation of the Quran; 4) not accepting the denial of the synonym of the words belonging to two accents.
