This study discusses on the language style of fasl wa wasl in surah al-Qiyāmah which is one of the most important elements through the relationship between words or a sentence. This study addresses two main objectives namely to identify the form and purpose of the fasl wa wasl and secondly, to formulate the implicit meaning through the relationship between words and sentences. Hence, this study aims to highlight a form of relationship that exists in the story and telling of the Day of judgment found in Surah al-Qiyāmah. To achieve that goal, a qualitative study by employing texts analysis was carried out. The findings show that there are five particles ‘wau ‘aṭaf’ in the sentence, and 10 are at the beginning of the verse. Of these, there are eight forms of relationship between the verses that have the equality between the two verses from the angle of expression and meaning, while only two relation of the verse which has the equality of two verses from the point of the meaning of the word with the first sentence of the verse and both of them are referred to as insyaiy. From the context of fasl, there are three forms process of fasl which is perfect connection, a perfect connection and perfect cutting without ambiguity. These three processes include reinforcement, re-evaluation and explanation, formed due to general, specific and non-causal forms, and different forms of sentences from the cornerstone and the meaning of the khabar and insya’ oor that have no meaning in the verse. This study can reveal the uniqueness of the message regarding the situation of the day of Judgment to be addressed through the process of fasl wa wasl in surah al-Qiyāmah.
