Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 35, Issue 40, Pages 27-46

The present research is a primary attempt to deduce mosul city from asoico-anthropological point of view in order identify the most important limitations of the Personality. It. thus reveals the basic features of it.
The researcher has started extracting some general results of the studies of national personality along the second half of the 20th Century.
Starting from the pioneering attempt of Dr. Ali Al wardi.
The researcher depends on four basic limitations:
a. Hereditary and biological limitations.
b. Limitations of geographical environment.
c. Limitations of sociological environment.
d. Cultural Limitations.
The researcher has tried to extract the effects of these limitations by analysing the historical and geographical data and their effects on the forms and values of social and cultural building. He then draws an image of mosuli personality which combines both the characters of a smart clever merchant.
Who can snipe chances and is able to respond to the ups and downs of business affairs with the capacity of dodging. He also carries the characters of a military worrier. Who is tuff self-confident and obedience. In some opposing mothers, the character of amilitary man replaces those of merchant. There fore, this character is generally characterized by a sharp mind and the great ability to cope with the different situations and self communing. Such a personality, however, loses the future of initiating to be replaced a headmaster, or a party or political official. Full obedience is required by those of lowness in the power hierarchy. This explains why mosuli is extremely successful when put in the second rank, in executive functions, and as a consultative rather than to be in a position to make decisions.

The Language of Islamic Poetry Between Bedouinison and Civilization

Ali Kamal Al-Din Al-Fshhadi

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 35, Issue 40, Pages 147-166

With the advent of Islam the Arabic Language started to improve and develop thanks to the Glorious Quran. People’s life began to change from bedouinism to urbanism. This included poets who neglected the various Arabic dialects and used the Quraish dialect: the language of the Glorious Quran. The public taste improved too, thus ignoring the strange austere bedouin words and embracing many foreign words due to the cultural contact between Arabs and foreign nations.
Ancient critics like Ibn Sallam, Al-Jurjani, Ibn Qutayba, Ibn Rashiq and Hazim Al-Qartajanni (Qartaji?) were aware of this change in their writings as Arabic adopted new words related to Islamic terminology as well as lexes of philosophy, art and science. The use of the bedouin dialect, consequently disappeared from Arbic poetry and was restricted to the description of the desert and its animals.

The Human Body in Pre-Islamic Arabic Poetry

yad M. S. Al-Yozbaky

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 35, Issue 40, Pages 167-184

This paper tackles the concept of the human body from a philosophical point of view and traces back the origins of human consciousness regarding the body as expressed in the Babylonian epic of Gilgamish in which the strength of the body was the basis of heroism.
The paper focuses on the dimensions of the human body in pre-Islamic Arabic poetry which occupied a considerably important place of poetic consciousness before Islam where stature and biological performance in the different activities of life assume aesthetic dimensions epitomised in particular in the image of the knight hero. To add, this poetry attached great importance to the woman’s body taking it as an epitome of beauty expressing the taste of the age.
This paper shows that the Arab in his search of immortality through such traits like chivalrousness and heroism immortalizes the vitality of the human body and its embodiment in the consciousness of society.

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 35, Issue 40, Pages 251-270

To help users cope with information overload, selective Dissemination of information (SDI) will increasingly become an important to olin wide area of information systems. In an SDI service, users post their long term queries, called profiles at some SDI servers and continuously receive new, filtered documents. To scale up with the volume of information and the size of users population, we need a distributed SDI service with multiple servers.
In this paper I decribe the advent of XML as a standard for information exchange and the developmeat of query languages for XML data enables the development of more sophisticated filtering mechanisms that take structure information in to account.
