Allah taught Prophet Muhammad the technique of argumentation to answer the accusations, rebuttals and arguments of the Quraysh. This argumentation technique was taught by Allah directly and had proven to be effective. So in addition to studying the theory of argumentation techniques, Muslims can also learn from the Prophet's argumentation techniques when answering the arguments of the Quraysh infidels. Like the time of the apostles, today the task of da'wah is also hampered by various accusations, denials and arguments that try to blame Islam. So we need a variety of argumentation techniques that can answer them effectively. This paper wants to know the various argumentation techniques taught by Allah when answering Quraish's objections and the context of their use. Using qualitative methods, this paper attempts to analyze the verses of the Qur'an which contain arguments to answer the Quraysh's infidel rebuttal to the messenger's da'wah. Using the theory of argumentation techniques initiated by Gorys Keraf, the results are found that the argumentation techniques taught by Allah are varied. Among them are the technique of genus, equation, comparison, cause and effect, authority, condition and presupposition. The presupposition technique does not exist in theoretical studies but is in the Qur'an. Another new finding is that when using a comparison technique, the two things being compared do not have to already exist, they can also be assumed if they are held.
