The solution to the pragmatic transfer experienced by Arabic learners can be found by re-reading Arabic turas using a pragmatic perspective born of modern linguistics. Abdul Qahir al-Jurjani's monumental work, one of the legacies of the Araby Dalail al-I'jaz turas, is studied critically with a naturalistic interpretive paradigm. It is analyzed with an intertextuality model to find its pragmatic thinking. Researchers used qualitative approach and the design was a historical text study. The results showed that Jurjani offers four pragmatic thoughts; first, producing discourse as ordered in al-nadzm theory, namely al-tandzim, al-bina', al-tartib and al-ta'liq. Second, the context offered by Jurjani uses the al-ta'dhiry al-tathbiqy approach, a blend of linguistics and ideology. The third is goal setting, and the fourth is discourse strategy. Jurjani combines linguistic and non-linguistic input in these last two cases and uses an argumentative persuasive strategy. Jurjani's offer when contextualized in solving pragmatic transfer problems is manifested in how to set learning objectives, design learning materials and learning strategies. The goal set must lead to achieving pragmatic competence. The selected material is in the form of functional texts. The chosen learning objective chooses language using a functional mindset to argumentative persuasion.
