Ayad Ali Yaseen

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 51, Pages 0-0

Luther played an influential role in the religious reformation in Germany where he was interested in Studying the different intellectual currents prevalent in his age such as mysticism, and the human philosophy.
Luther’s revolution was not a normal one against corrupt rule or bad social situation. But rather, it was a revolution against a thelogic system that lost its credibility. Luther concluded from his religious readings that the Christians could not gain salvation thanks to their personal efforts but through a mercy from God for they believe in Him. This conclusion pushed him to reject some basic principles and beliefs in Catholic Church. So Luther distinguished himself in Christian history, for he was the man who saved the Christians from the papal au-thorities and brought them back to the freedom of religion. Luther himself led the schism that lasted in America, Britian and Germany up till the presentday.

((أ ُذ ُن، اُفـُق، اُكـُل، ثـُلـُث، ثـُمُن جُرُف، حُبُك، حـُلـُم، خـُمُس، رُبُع، سُدُس، ظـُفـُر، عُمُر، عُنـُق، فـُرُط، قـُبُل، قـُدُس، نـُزُل، نـُصُب))

Abd Al-star Fathil; Roba Yonus

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 51, Pages 353-382

Al-Azhari is Muhammed bin Ahmed bin Abu Mansur Al-harawi Al-Shafii, the linguist. He was born in (282) A. H. in Hurat, one of the famous Khurasan's cities. He brought up in it and received science from its old men and scientists. He also became famous in philology and Hadith. However, he skilled in linguistics and even a number of his translators introduced him as a linguist in identifying him. His fame in philology come after his fame in linguistics. He is one of the four leaders of language, who are agreed on their favour, knowledge and authenticity with them. He is an authority of what he transfers of Arab speech.
One of his famous old men is Al-Husein bin Idris, Abu Ali Al-Ansari Al-harawi (died in 301 A. H.), Abdul-allah bin Aurua Al-harawi (died in 311 A. H.), Abu Al-Qasim Abdul-allah bin Muhammed bin Al-murzaban Al-bagdawi (died in 317) and others. He taught many students who became famous leaders such as Junada bin Muhammed bin Al-Husein Al-Harawi (died in 399 A.H.) Abu Aubied bin Ahmed bin Muhammed Al-Harawi Al-shafii (died in 401 A.H.), Abu-Alhasan Ali bin Muhammed Al-Harawi (died in 429 A.H.), Istaq bin Abi Ishaq Al-Qrab (died in 429 A.H.), Abu Othman Al-Quraishi Al-Harawi (died in 433 A.H.), Abu-Thar Abed bin Ahmed Al-Harawi Al-Ansari (died in 434 A.H.) and others.
Al-Azhari had left a huge scientific literature in various fields. His famous books are:
(Correction of the language), (The flourised in strange words of Al-shafii), (The readings and faults of the grammarians.) which named (Faults of Readings).
His book (Meaning of Readings) which is the field of our investigation beside his other books are witness of his wide-experience and knowledge in the language. Al-Azhari tackled in this book the meaning of the seven known readings that are readings of Ibn Amer (died in 118 A.H.), Ibn Kather (died in 120 A.H.) Asim (died in 127 A.H.), Abi Amru (died in 154 A.H), Hamza (died 156 A.H), Nafia (died in 169 A.H.) and Al-Kisai (died in 189 A.H.), adding to it reading of Ya'aqubi Al-hadhrami (died in 205 A.H.), explaining what is related with the meaning of each reading in phonology, morphology, grammar and semantics. The linguist sections varied in this book. The grammatical sections have their clear importance in grammatical interpretation which is considered obvious phenomenon in Al-azhari's book (Meaning of Readings) and this is the subject of this research which will concern with.

Qurānic Rectation in Ibn Hishām’s Book “Sharh Qatrual Nada wa Balul Sada” AGrammatical Study

Nawfal Ali Majeed

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 38, Issue 51, Pages 383-414

We are obliged first of all, to refer that our research marked (Quranic Recitations in Ibn Hisham’s book “Sharh Qatrual Nada wa Balul Sada”, A Grammactial study) is free of any justification to Quranic Recitations of which Ibn Hisham had presented his attitude because we have set a specific section for that subject. In addition, our method has depended upon choosing Recitation that have an Arabizing problem. Also we may have been obliged to mention one Recitation and any other one because Ibn Hisham did not mention others. We have drawn out the names of reciters who had recited with the mentioned Recitations out of their original resources.
Our research falls into two chapters. The first has been entitled (Arabizing explanation) in which we have presented the most important Quranic Recitations whether they are frequent or irregular. As the recite of (يرثني) and (يرث) are recited in nominative and jussive cases Similarly the irregular Recitation (رب) is recited in a nominative case. We have studied the justification of these Recitations by explaining schollars’ opinions in this matter. We may have an opinion that we have proved at the end of every grammatical problem. The second chapter came under the title (Grammatical Explanation). In this chapter, Recitations are as multiple as the grammatical explanation in Arabic because explanation can be achieved by omission, advancing and delaying, empty morphs and implicitness etc. Among these mentioned explanations is the explanation by omission. One of its forms is the omission of the noun as in (حين) in nominative case. The omission of letters as in (يرسل) and (يا مال), explanation by advancing and delaying as (البر) in objective case and explanation by empty morph as (ليخرجن). We have referred to the term (empty morph) and its semantics in terminology at the beginning of our speech. We have mentioned that Ibn Hisham had refused to use terms in his books other than (Sharh Qatrul Nada) but he had contradicted in his very book that we study.
