شكوى الغربة الزمكانية في شعر عذري بني امية

Rafe; Sarraj Sukkara Ali I. K. Al-Joboori; aa S. Hussein Al

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 40, Issue 58, Pages 120-146

The research investigates the state of spatial-temporal complaint that the platonic poets of Bani Umayia had. Given the importance that this study holds on artistic semantics, the research was divided into two main sections:
1- Temporal alienation and its influence in revealing the platonic poet's psychological dilemma as he suffers from what time has done to him. Time in literature is presented as "Humane time", thus the psychological suffering of the poet is clearly felt.
2- Spatial alienation is the section that tries to explain the spatial information associated with it, and tries to identify the boundaries that the poet has set for himself in his poetry, both semantically and pragmatically within the structure of the poem. In this sense, place turns, by means of meaning and symbols, into a concentration of values and social reality and reveals the extent of the poet's interactivity with his society.

The Phonetic Parallelism in Al Qamar Surah

Ashwaq Mohamed Esmaeel

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 40, Issue 58, Pages 147-191

This paper deals with a fundamental issue in phonetics, namely phonetic parallelism which represents one of the miraculous aspects in Al- Qamar Surah. The study explains the concept of parallelism paying a special attention to the parallelism of word components, for example, the parallelism of short vowels, the parallelism of rhyming letters, and syllable parallelism in addition to the parallelism of syntactic components. This includes the parallelism of the partial syntactic repetition and that of the full syntactic repetition.
The paper comes out with the conclusion the phonetic parallelism in AL- Qamar Surah has verbal aesthetic dimensions that are consistent with some structural syntactic and semantic functions. Furthermore, rhyme contributes to the achievement of a unified beat, which indicates the continuation of tone, connectivity, and succession. This goes well with Almightly God's follow up for the ancient people, who were liars, and is consistent with the significance of movement, speed, hardship, repetition and exaggeration.

Poetry in a Prosaic Context: A Reading in Hani Bin Qabeesa Al_Shaybani `s Speech

Shareef Basheer Ahmad

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 40, Issue 58, Pages 190-206

The speech mixes prose and poetry in a piece of language which removes the boundaries among the literary genres, for should not think that the study tries to compare the poetics of speech with the poetics of Al_A`sha, Al_Nabigha, Al_Mutanaby, Safi ud_Din Al_Hilly and Mohmmad Mahdi Al_jawahiry, it tries to combine prose and poetry by means of the variance, and similarity rather than by contrast and difference. The presence of one genre does not exclude the other. The poetic aspect endows the speech with the characteristics of being brief, condensed and metaphor and avoids redundancy and verbosity. The study therefore, is an applied interest in poetry using prosaic tools through using poetry within prosaic contexts.
The theory of literary genres draws a distinction among the genres by judging each genre according to the standards and criteria each one has and the stylistic features using strict parameters. However, poetry within prose performs an epistemological function with an aesthetic aspect linked to the change in the angle of vision.
The study removes the boundaries among the literary genres to the extent of violating the cognitive legacy which states that there are strict borderlines among the genres. It similarly rejects any merging among the genres which have a lot in common. For any connection between prose and poetry is not dictated by form, rather the mixture is what endows them with knowledge and the mobility of awareness. Rhyme is no longer considered a separating trench between poetry and prose because the definition of poetry changes and renews with time and ideology.

Jasem Mohamed Jasem

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 40, Issue 58, Pages 207-237

During the period under investigation (1949 – 1958) , Lebanon witnessed the existence of many forms of frontal Work. These forms were effective and influential at the level of interior policy. Lebanese factional coalitions began within the framework of traditional parliamentary opposition. It resulted in the (committee of coalitions factions), a coalition that opposed reelecting Bushara Al – Khuree for a second term. This coalition agreed upon the democracy of dissolving the parliament, holding free elections, securing general liberties, integrity and joining the legal factions that adopted this stance like “ Social Progressive Party “, “ National Liberty Bloc “, “ National Bloc “, The Party of Public Unity “, “ National Calling Party ” and “ Al- Gasasina Organization”.
As for the “ National Social Bloc ” ,it is a parliamentary bloc that opposes Al- Khuree.It doesn’t , however , comprise all the parties of the first coalition. Most of its members and nationalist figures. It comprises eight parliamentary members. The programme of this front is clear that of the committee of factions. It is of economical social and democratic nature. It succeeded in deposing Bushara Al-Khuree and electing one of its members (Kameel Shamoun) for the president of the state instead of him.
The third coalition, however, was the public social bloc. It undertook achieving the necessary reforms in Lebanon. The figures participating in it were friends to the progressive party or active members in it.As for its programme, it was similar to that of the national social bloc.
Factional congress, however, was of different nature. It was a coalition among many factions that demanded for reforms surpasses the internal reforms. It standard its meetings with calling for supporting the struggle of the Arab people in Morrocow. Then, it enlisted the reform demands on its agenda. The congress programme was distanced with political feature which became clear through preserving Lebanon’s unity, and independency. It was rejecting western alliances specially Baghdad alliance in 1955.
The National Front was closest to the national socialism front in their members , clearly it was personalities alliance more the between parties , while its announcing program nearest to the party conference program , therefore it concentrated on public political requirements such as refusing second presidential renew for Kamil Shamoon and resisting his political perversion specially the external policy related to western bias. But it is as former alliances determined the relation between its members while its political role was great.

So we know the history and the place of manufacture and occasionally the name of the person who commanded the operation of making the coins and the limits of his religious and living authority and some other features of live he was living.

The voyage of the Danish Carsten Niepuhr to Iraq is one of the historical expeditions documenting the history of Iraq in general, and the history of Mosul in particular in the mid of the 18th century A.D. The importance of this voyage comes from the descriptions and depictions it provides of a number of cultural and political aspects of the city.
The present research sheds light on the building structures of Mosul in the Ottoman reign as depicted by the voyage of Carsten Niepuhr. The Danish voyager arrived at the city of Mosul in (1765 A.D/ 1178 A.H) when it was one of the vassal territories of the Ottoman Empire and was ruled by Al-Jaleeli dynasty (1136-1249 A.H/ 1726- 1834 A.D), the founder of which was Abdul-Jaleel. During the reign of this dynasty, Mosul had witnessed remarkable building improvements and expansions and many buildings were constructed such as mosques, markets, schools and courts. Those building constructions left prominent construction remains which outline the distinctive architectural structures of Mosul. Niepuhr focused during his stay at the city on a number of prominent constructions, religious buildings and facilities and hence, provided us with a clear and comprehensive picture of what those buildings and constructions were like back in that period of time. However, in order to have an overall comprehension and clear visualization, the present study analyzes the voyage records and compares these records with the documents of the local history of the city aiming at authenticating Niepuhr's records and adding more analyzing information of the buildings and of what is left of them.
The present study falls into several parts. First, an overview of the Iraqi city of Mosul during the Ottoman reign is presented. Second, the identification of Niepuhr and his expedition and the depictions he made of the buildings and constructions at the city in that period are illustrated. The analysis of these depictions according to historical and architectural data is also provided. Furthermore, a variety of relevant sources and references has been consulted. Finally, a number of photos, a map of the buildings and constructions Niepuhr's depicted and a map showing his trip from Baghdad to Mosul are included in the study.

Rafal N. Abdul-Qadir

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 40, Issue 58, Pages 524-567

The present study tries to shed light on Resource Description and Access (RDA), which could be an heir to Anglo- American Cataloging rules as an alternative to their revised and amended editions of AACR with its different revisions. RDA comes as an essential to meet the needs of the rapidly vital developments and meets different variables including the rules of RDA and their impacts on the area of library science in general and the field of cataloging in particular which is dominated by internet and the important publication.
The study uses the analytical descriptive method through defining the variables which led to issuing (RDA) rules.
One of the important conclusions of the study shows that RDA rules are not isolated from the preceding traditional rules of cataloging which have become inadequate to meet the requirements of processing the internet resources and the other electronic media, and to match the new developed standards, internet protocols and markup languages (Metadata, MARC21(), XML, etc) RDA rules match also the new models of FRBR and FRAR.
Among the suggestions of the study are: urging libraries, information centers, and other academic institution concerned with libraries and information to adopt (RDA)rules; training the catalogers to apply these rules in their own institutions; and these rules to be translated into Arabic by qualified regional or international institutions
