This research aims to shed light on the problem of the relationship of the word with the meaning in the Islamic rhetoric field, because it is the basic epistemological linguistic problem that occupied the forefront in the rhetoric cognitive system, and it has worked to crystallize it since the era of codification, as this dilemma was a subject of dispute among scholars with their various references in the deliberative Islamic field, but in the history of mankind as a whole, which extends through times and epochs, this problem was raised in the Greek era by the poles of Greek philosophy as an integral part of the study of ontology, as the philosophy of language that concerned itself with language in its general and abstract concept was not a self-contained philosophy for them. Pioneers of Greek philosophy who are credited with developing linguistic and logical studies. It has been associated with Islamic thinkers, especially among jurists, with understanding the Qur’anic text and determining its true and intended meaning, which requires that the truth matches between human understanding or human knowledge on the one hand and the intended divine meaning expressed in the Qur’anic text on the other hand. They defend it against the anti-Islam sects, as they add to this problem a metaphysical dimension, which is organically related to the issue of "creating the Qur'an", and it was not confined to linguistics and forensic sciences only, Rather, it was strongly present among the logical philosophers who were influenced by Greek philosophy to the point of fascination, and the positions of the rhetoricians differed according to their different starting points.
