It treats issue of intertextual relations in the novel and connection to the Qur’an which is expressed in direct citation of certain ayats (or parts of ayats) from Qur’an that are placed in initial positions of the chapters. The main issue in this work revolves around transformation of cited ayats in the novel as well as the ways of it’s adaptation in the very text of the novel.
