One of the issues long been discussed by some commentators and scholars of the Quranic studies, is repitition in the stories of Qur'an. Khatib believes that this phenomenon has provided a ground for some writers including Orientalists to criticize the Quran. These scholars have considered repetition a disorder in the organization of Quran ,and a shortcoming regarding its miracle and eloquence and also its weakness in conveying its meanings. On the other hand , controversy in the image represented of the scences of the stories in different suras of Quran , has led to this belief that some of the elements and parts of these stories are fiction. Opposed to this group, some commentators and scholars of the Quran have defended this repetition, determining its value and advantages.Abdol-Karim Khatib is one of the commentators who not only disregard repetition as a shortcoming but also regards it as a feature of its been miracle.Denying any real repetition ,he considers each image a complement to other images of the same scene.
