Allegory is a method for illustrating and dramatizing a topic, which persuades the audience to spontaneous imagination and thinking. We should seek the function of using allegory in the Qur'an in the deep effects of its teachings that make the readers grasp it regardless of their levels of understanding and perception and use it in regulating their plan of life. In this paper, the researcher aims to analyze aesthetic aspects of allegory in literary language of the Qur'an by using analytical – descriptive research method and by referring to Qur'anic ayahs. The study shows that the Qur'an, which is the language of guidance, faith and moving inspiration, has benefited very much from language devices such as allegory for inviting to reflection, influence and learning lessons; and eventually for human edification.
