القصة القرآنية: قراءة فنية في شخصية نوح عليه السلام ورمزيتها
(Quranic Story: An Artistic Reading of the Character of Noah (PBUH) and its Symbolism)
This paper focus on the study of characterization in the Quran by taking the character of Prophet Noah as an example. The paper elaborates the concept of “character,” its literary dimensions and its role in Arabic narratives. Most critical studies focused on exegesis without focusing on characterization, as in the study by Hassan Mohamad Zaghal on the “Character of Noah in the Noble Quran.” This study, by employing descriptive and analytical approaches, fills this gap and illustrates the relation between Quranic characters and modern artistic and literary criteria.
Key words: Quranic story, literary character, Noah, literary dimensions, characterization methods.
