The root "nzl" is one of the most frequent roots used in various lexical forms close to four hundred times in the Qur' an. Originally meant ' to descend from top to down', this root has found semantic expansion in the Qur' an when used in other senses, such as creating, forgiveness, learning, entering, trial AND promise. Whenever the word nuzul has been used to refer torain, its context is different from the sending down of the Qur'an: in the former, this word is solely used with the word sama (the sky) while in the latter, when indicating the sending down ofwahy, it is always collocating words AND phrases such asmin indina, rouholamin, heart of the Prophet AND along with multiple attributes of God. In the Holy Qur'an, this word has collocated on the SYNTAGMATIC AXIS with words AND phrases such as merciful AND compassionate, the Lord of the Worlds, " Mighty, the Wise ", "the Wise, the Praised One", AND Haqq AND that it shows the greatness AND holiness of the Qur'an AND in fact it introduces God as the real actor AND the doer of the revelation. Further, at PARADIGMATIC AXIS, it has been substituted by words such aswahy, ilqa, qira' at, tilawat, aati, Ja’a, AND Jaala each of which tell the sending down of the Qur'an in some ways AND portray Prophet's (SA) relationship with the Angel of Revelation.
