Priority and posterity are one of the expressive styles of the Qur’an and among its means of brevity, which denote the inimitability and beauty of style of the Holy Qur’an. Nevertheless, some of the orientalists have claimed that the Qur’an’s priority (taqaddum) and posterity (ta’akhkhur), especially the priority and posterity of jar and majrūr (a preposition and the word it governs) have caused confusion among the addressees. Accordingly, examining various types and evidences of priority and posterity of jar and majrūr in the Holy Qur’an shows that this would result in understanding most of the verses and familiarization with style and art of rhetoric and eloquence and finally better understanding the Qur’an’s inimitability. In addition, all the prepositions do not have the same functions; rather, some of them have become prior over others due to their superior role and status and a number due to their conformity with the context of previous verses.
