Abstract

This research examines the phenomenon of Stopping and Starting and their effect in guiding the meanings of the Holy Quran. I started with an introduction that defines the Stopping, and shows its importance in the clarification of the meanings. Then I spoke about how our scholars took special care while studying the Stopping. Then talked about when the reader ignores the rules of Stopping and Starting (or the so-called Unfavorable Stopping), and its effect in misleading the listener into understanding the wrong meaning. Afterwards, I talked about the how the experienced reader who possesses high rhetorical decency would change and maneuver the use of some Stoppings, especially when the sentences can handle more than one meaning according to where the Stopping is happening (Sufficient Stopping), and its effect on enriching the underlying meanings. I then talked about obligatory Stopping and Starting (Complete Stopping), and its effect in the protecting the listener from misunderstanding. Finally, I finished with the conclusion of the research.
