This research aims to study the word (al-adha) harming in the Qur'an and explore its meanings within the contexts. Other relevant words, which are (al-durr) and (al-su'), will be also looked at. Then the research examines "harming" with regards to messengers and their followers and it has been revealed that such an examination helps to assess the opinions of exegetes and to correct some views.
The current research concludes that the word (al-adha) harming is used to indicate little harm for a short time. However, in some different contexts, it is used to imply urging for comfort and patience.
