The meaning of the quotation in literature is “taking, transfering a word, a sentence or their meaning directly,”, is also used to benefit from the someone’s knowledge as well. At this point, as Allah or Hz. Muhammad is refered, in terms of credibility, quotation becomes a means of evidence to prove what is said. In our literature, quoting from the verses is often used in poetry. However, in our literature, prose writings have also been quoted from verses. Particularly quoting from the verses in the text can increase the validity of that text even more. For this reason, Turkish literature has been quoted abundantly in the texts. According to the sources, in general, it is appropriate to quote of the Qur'an in sermon, address, etc.; to quote the Qur'an in ghazal, risale and parables is allowable; to quote the Qur'an in non-solemn poems, obscene verses, etc. is not appropriate.
