The Holy Qur’an was revealed in a society whose language was greatly eloquent; thus, it naturally used familiar words and expressions to communicate with them. Moreover, pre-Islamic Arab poems – the treasure trove of Arab poetry, literature, and culture – mirrored the richness of the language in which they were composed. The present paper seeks to investigate the semantic relationships between the pre-Islamic Arab poems and the Holy Qur’an in order to locate their semantic overlaps. The great number of the words shared between the two confirms the eloquence of the common words, small temporal distance between the composition of poems and revelation of the Holy Qur’an, and the pre-Islamic nature of poems.
