Phonetics have utmost importance in linguistics especially in the study of the Quran because it addresses the human being in such a unique linguistically sound the perfect way that whoever reads or listens to the Book of Allah abruptly finds an exceptional harmonization, beauty, and relief that is never felt while reading some book written by the man. There is no doubt that the listeners are spell-bound by the phonetics and the aesthetic phonemics of the Quran and most of them (who have been elevated by the Guidance of Allah) would be not only convinced with the very message of the Quran and eventually converted to Islam also. As far as the research methodology is concerned, a descriptive method has been adopted for the said research paper as this method deems appropriate for such topics and analyzing them briefly from all possible aspects. This research paper has discussed the aesthetic phonemic structure of the Holy Quran, especially focusing on the verses related to Moses (PBUH) and some of the main findings can be summarized as follows: The aesthetic phonetic structure of the Quran does have a definite effect on every human and each word of Quran with its specific phonetic force attracts the speaker and listener at the same time. Therefore, it can be concluded that Quran being the word of Allah leaves a very well-synchronized impact on the human beings.
