For the first time, an objective text analysis of the Prefixed letters known as mystery letters, Huroof-e- Muqattaat (cut letters) referred to as Prefaced Letters in this paper. The study of these letters had been a closed subject for a long time till the author reopened it with pure Textual Linguistic and Stylistic tools. A Stylistic Approach that adopts the functional linguistic approach with additional help from Katambas morphological templates to follow Stylistic analysis of the Quranic texts in order to propose a meaningful linguistic role of the prefaced letters in this paper. Theory in linguistics and the stylistic analysis of the complex relations in the Quranic chapters reveal specific cohesive and coherent character to these letters. This research shows that apparently undecipherable letters interconnect the long Quranic chapters and their series and the context and structure of the Quran are reread and explained in terms of a contemporary linguistic, stylistic methodology to help readers see how they operate in the text to create phonological, syntactic and semantic patterns. The study inherently touches the issue of coherence and cohesion in the Quran. This work is a development in Quranic studies which brings to the field of Quranic study the fruit of linguistics: the scientific study of human language, providing a systematic analysis of the Prefaced Quranic chapters.
