The importance and justification of the research

The first objective of this study is to analyze the nature of linguistic thinking among the Arabs, which helped them to form a nation of intellectual and civilization formation through a culture of its Arabic campaign to the world. As long as the Persians from the circulation of knowledge, and removed the languages of the peoples of the State of the Caliphate, and there is no evidence that the linguists and philosophers Muslim learned, and mastered, and created them.

The second goal was to stand at the major rules on which Arab scholars based, in the Middle Ages "from the second to the sixth century AH" These rules and foundations are suitable for non-language in terms of curriculum, especially in their study of the nature of language, and distinguish language from speech, through criteria They developed it, then developed it until it became valid for generalization, assay and conclusion.

In the third end, we sought to follow the efforts of linguists, grammarians, and rhetorists to extract a comprehensive basis for the study of "semantics", which compelled them to use science from outside the language "logic" and "natural" to enhance their ability to extrapolate and analyze from the "reality" of the text, and even within it I found out the possibility of generalization ...

As for the standing on "truth and metaphor" was the main purpose of the research, and therefore we stopped at the explanations of linguists and rhetoric and their analysis of verses from the wise Quran, and then reviewed their ability to measure between the "text" of the Quran and the words of the Arab poetry and prose, and we entrusted the research towards the methodology of the big and IbnQutaiba and Jurjani imams of Curriculum, language and statement who studied language at the "singular" level and at the "syntax" level.

We did not fail to distinguish between the metaphors: stylistic and linguistic, and come to the characteristics of each of them, that - if separated - constitute the unity of Arab rhetorical thinking.
