AbstractStylistics is amongst the most important linguistics issues and is itself divided into various subdivisions; this research is concerned with the issue of sound and its repetition. Sound (phoneme) is the smallest particle of a literary text, and studying it will guide us towards perceiving the meaning of the words through their sounds. Sounds are of various kinds such as loud and plosive ones, or more subtle and gentle ones, as well as the ones with a whistle-like quality, all of which have been appropriately employed in Quranic letters, words, and sentences. Repetition is the basis for the formation of an external music in the holy verses of Quran; and the length of it is related to the meaning of the verse. Findings of the research indicate a complete correlation between the lengths of the verses and loud, gentle, and whistle-like qualities of the sounds. Aside from the repetition of verses, this research covers the repetition of sounds. The present stylistics research seeks to categorize the sounds in the Sura of ADDARIAT as well as studying the repetition of letters, words, and sentences with a descriptive-analytical approach.
