This study seeks to identify a rhetorical style characterized by the Holy Qur’an, which is the ascending style in the discourse directed to humans in general and Muslims in particular. This style is based on raising the pronunciation at the level of the letter, word, sentence or complete verse and the subject as well, which the student tried to focus on by standing at some Quranic scenes. This style is one of the styles that attract attention to the people of language and eloquence, along with other styles such as narrative and poetic styles, and historical situations that bear lessons and psychological effects on humans.

The Qur’anic discourse is distinguished by its ability to penetrate the human self, but whoever reads it or listens to it, especially the people of language who understand and realize the strengths and weaknesses of the language.

This style focused in most of the Meccan verses and surahs, which focused on building society, morals, and modifying human behavior, which prevailed before the revelation of the Qur’an, such as, the rights of women and orphaned children, respect for parents, and the rejection of lies and hypocrisy, and others. These do not need, of course, to lengthen sentences, but You need a short speech that enters the ear and affects the human soul directly, which is what happened, as most of the short surahs are Meccan and easy to memorize and understand. Therefore, the phenomenon of linguistic ascending focused mostly on short surahs such as Al-Muddathir, Al-Qiyamah, Al-Najm, Al-Samad, Al-Falaq and An-Nas...etc.
