Bshar Akrm Gameel

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 95-122

The East-African Coast is regarded as one of the oldest locations that has direct contact with the Islamic world . settlers of this territory are characterized by having a very old and strong relationship with Arabs even before Islam. Commerce in general played a big role nourishing this relationship. with the arrival and commencement of the Islamic religion to these locations came a development of relationships spreading them throughout the whole African continent. Migration between the Arab and African lands also played a role similar to that of commerce in fortifying these relationships.
As the number of merchants who established themselves along the African coastline increased along with the arrival of large groups of immigrants, there came a desperate need for mosques to be built both in the original cities along the coastline and the newly established Muslim cities. city planning and development started according to Islamic traditions and architecture and settlers started investing in the building of the mosques. the traditions and architectural styles of the original cities which setters and migrants came from were reflected in the newly–built cities. As time went by small mosques evolved into bigger mosques with Friday prayers and other ceremonial and religions activities. mosques became of very many shapes and sizes and were then followed by the building of all sorts of establishments.
The Arab–Islamic style and tradition controlled the forms of mosques along the East–African coast, although there were a few traces of non–Islamic, non–Arab architecture here and there. A complete architectural view formed as one looks at the mosques and all their parts including the place of prayer, the prayer–call tower and the mosques dome.

Luma Abd Al-Aziz

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 123-148

Health is considered as one of those social entities concerned with the enonomic relations between people. it reflects the social condition and its progress. Thus we can observe the spread of desease among underdeveloped societies .
Iraq witnessed under the Ottoman empire which extended for four centuries, the most bad condition of poverty, sickness and illiteracy. The conditions caused the spread of diseases such as measles mumps .
The Ottoman conquest showed no interest in the health of Iraqi people especially in Baghdad except some personal efforts exerted by Medhat Pasha who made the first public hospitals. these hospitals had been paid no attention with the end of the Ottoman empire, they were only five hospitals.
Yet those hospitals faced many problems in their duty in treating people due to the lack of financial allocations such as the capacity and their supplies with medical equipments. The second problem was the lack of the qualified cadres who were specialzed in various medical fields. This was the most problem which remaind till the first decade of the 20th century till the Iraqi pioneering of doctors graduated from the colleges of medicine.
Another negative point was concerned with the geographical distribution of the doctors, and medical centers. They were gathered in Baghdad except for some centers in Karbala. What made the situation worse was the failure of the whole medical situations concerned those visitors of the sacred shrines which caused the spread of diseases and caused a large number of deaths especially in Baghdad.

The Messenger’s Activities in al-Madina al-Munawwarah

Mohammad Omer Ahmad

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 177-191

When Islam came into being in Mecca, the Messenger (peace be upon him) and his companions faced a strong resistance, which made him migrate to al-Madina al-Munawwarah whose people welcomed him and pledged allegiance to him, there the Islamic state was established in al-Madina al-Munawwarah .
The study deals with the Messenger’s activities in al-Madina al-Munawwarah. When the Messenger (peace be upon him) entered al-Madina, he started setting up the Islamic state on solid basis through establishing some institutions and organizations among which the building of the Mosque was but the first step that led to the social and religious construction of the new state. Then he declared the fraternity between al-mahajireen and al-ansar to solve the social and economic problems faced by al-mahajireen upon their arrival at al-Madina al-Munawwarah .
Then the Messenger (peace be upon him) began to organize the relationships among the people of al-Madina on the one hand and establish the pillars of the new state on the other hand. Thus the Messenger (peace be upon him) forwarded the constitution for the Muslims to organize their life in al-Madina and determine their relationships with the neighbouring cities. Such constitution reflected the legislation and comprehended the conditions of the people. Then, the Messenger (peace be upon him) turned to the Islamic army trying to organize to exalt the Word of Allah and protect the Islamic community.

Abdu AL-Auza bin Abdu AL-Mutalib (Abu Lahab) His Life and His Hostile Attitude towards Islamic Mission

Ikhlas Abed-AL-Razak Mahmod

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 177-222

All of us know that Abu Lahab has a great role in resisting the Islamic mission. The prophet (God's blessing and peace be upon him) wasn’t confronting the danger of the unbelievers only, but what larger than this is that of the unbelievers from his relatives of Banu Hashem like Abu Lahab and others. They stood strongly and severely against him and worked to destroying his mission by all means. Here other one may ask this question why we had mentioned Abu Lahab more than others of Quriash Leaders?
We say that because Abu Lahab was the Prophet's uncle and one of the famous heads of Banu Hashem, to whom a sura devoted in the holy Quran promising with a punishment, torture and grace in his life and death. So that, his hostile attitude provoked the unbelievers and strengthened their pretext in his hostility, destroying him and his mission. Therefore, his attitude united with the rest of Quriesh influential Leaders from the beginning, because they felt that the Islamic mission will damage their profits and ruin their privileges, so they plotted conspiracies and made anti-powers against the Prophet. Then Abu Lahab separated from tribalism to money and privilege.
I had mentioned in this research the details of events and reviewing them from two sides:
First: Life of Abu Lahab before Islam.
Second: His attitude towards Islamic mission.
And I concluded it by analyzing the opposition of Abu Lahab its reasons, results and death (God curse him).

Quranic Expressions with Three Readings

Firas Abd Al-Aziz Abd Al-Qadir

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 295-330

The research entitled "What is recited in three different vowel points in Quran" deals with Quranic utterances that came to be recited with triple vowel points. We mean by tripling, reciting the Quranic utterances with three different vowel points. While we were scanning the places where such Quranic recitation occurred, we found that the difference in the vowel points as triple was caused by two main reasons: first, the linguistic and dialectal difference in pronouncing the utterance, and the second, the grammatical different parsing of the utterance. So, we divided the research into two parts. We entitled the first "The linguistic orientation of the recited in tripling", in which we treated the pronunciation of the letter which is vowelized with triple vowel points according to its dialectal pronunciation. We entitled the second part "Grammatical orientation of what is recited in tripling and its vowel point" in which we treated the variation in parsing the utterance that is vowelized with nominative, accusative and jussive, and the grammatical orientation of that utterance. Our work has established the origin of the recitation and who recited it. It followed up with linguistic and grammatical analysis for all discussed uttera

Comments on Sibawaihi’s Orienting Robbery Verse

Rawa Mohammad Al-zrry

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 343-258

This research shows a controversial syntactic question by the giant of syntax and exegesis on Sibawaihi's orientation of Robbery verse in the Glorious Qurān. We preferred to divide the study into two parts, though both have a general perspective to explain its ambiguity. The first one is listed under the title "The Predicate of the Subject in the Nominal Sentence". While the second has the heading "Reading the Accusative".
The controversy of the first case has started in theorizing the rules of syntax according to the exegetist and those who consulted the surface meaning. As for the controversy of the second one (Reading the Accusative) was much more apparent to the extent that those who disagreed Sibawaihi's viewpoint were considered as audacious. The research concludes that the semantic element is closely linked with the syntactic one. Sibawaihi was not only after the syntactic view point but also the semantic one.

Symbolism in Sami Mahdi's Poetry In His Poetic Collection (Continents Mail)

Hamad Mohammad Fathi

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 52, Pages 391-410

Symbolis considered as a mean of referring with emotion through psychological raising not through naming and declaring . It is considered one of the most famous poetry forms and techniques in Modern Arabic poetry. The poet intends using the word or phrase to refer to another thing, the symbol is contrasted with metaphor and comparison , lacking to similar and may be described as a kind of mask blinding these ideas.
So the symbolis always a mean to transporting emotions and rare complex conscious cases, and not as a mean of describing an ideology, because ideology has its fixed symbols to express any style of idea. Man cannot accept that the symbol is calling just by emotions, because each nation's literature has its traditional symbols In Arabic there are Sword, Crescent. All these symbols bears meanings that all knew but the symbolic poet has his special way in building his symbols .The symbol is a kind of trying to pass the reality that can not talk about in a direct way for different reasons to reflect the reality in a way of expressing.
