عنوان مقاله [English]
Prologue (bera't-e istihlal), good beginning (husn-e ibtida), and good ending (husn-e khitam) are among the semantic literary devices of badīʿ that play a major role in the beauty of literary prose and poetry, attracting the attention of the audience and compelling it to accompany with the story. The variety in the way to begin a text and the semantic coherence between the introduction, the body and the ending in a story is one of the hallmarks of the ability of the literator and the eloquent in the creation of a work. The Holy Qur’an as divine words and the unparalleled miracle of the Prophet of mercy (PBUH) has absorbed hearts to the glory of its expression mesmerizing the ears of the soul. One of the indicators of the Qur’anic miracle is the beginnings and the endings of the surahs that start with attractive words and expressions, articulating the intended messages of each surah using lively and appropriate references and suggestions hence rubbing off tiredness from the audience. In addition, Qur’anic stories similarly begin in different ways. The introductions of Qur’anic stories enjoy diversity and a special artistic appeal, arousing enthusiasm and motivation among the readers using its idiosyncratic expressional methods. Besides, the coherence of the words, internal music, close semantic relationship, and proportionality between introduction, body and ending of the story plays an influential role in catching the attention of the readers, and making them interested in accompanying the ups and downs of the story scenes.
