Al-Manār Research Institute is privileged to announce the launch of its first publication Tafhim ul-Ājurrûmiyyah (Understanding al-Ājurrûmiyyah) in Urdu/Arabic on the eve of Eid al-Azha 1433 H / 2012 CE.
What is this?
The book is actually a research work and is based on extensively edited text of Matan ul-Ājurrumiyyah fi al-Nahw wa al-Sarf. This matan (text) has been authored by a great grammarian of Morocco Imam Abu ‘Abd-Allah Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Dawud al-Sinhaji al-Ājurrumi al-Kufi popularly known as Imām Ibn Ājurrum. He lived in eighth Century Hijri i.e. from 672 H / 1273 CE to 723 H /1323 CE. It deals primarily with Arabic grammar (nahw) and makes it very easy to comprehend.
Is it taught anywhere in the World?
This small text of Imam Ibn Ājurrum is being taught throughout Arab counties in general and in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in particular and students memorize it at their tender ages. Many commentaries have been written on this text and in our times Shaikh Muhammad ibn Salih al-‘Uthaymin used to teach this text in his halaqat (open classes). The book is also taught to students at al-Manār, Srinagar.
What are its salient features?
To benefit from this valuable book, Dr. Muied-uz-Zafar (Kashmir) edited its text from dozens of manuscripts and printed books. After a thorough editing the text was provided with dialectical marks along with a translation and a brief commentary in Urdu.
To make this book more useful for the students of Arabic Language and literature almost all the examples/illustrations are provided from the Qur’an and the Hadith literature and the scheme followed is in line with the great textbook series of Dr. V. Abdur Rahim, Durûs al-Lughah al-‘Arabiyyah li-Ghair al-Nâtiqîna Bihâ (دروسُ اللغةِ العربيةِ لـغير الناطقين بـها : popularly known throughout the world as Madinah Books).
Furthermore, an extensive index has been prepared by the author which is greatly helpful for students as well as teachers to find out the required discussions about the different problems of Arabic Language. In addition to this a select bibliography on Arabic language and grammar is also given at the end of the book. Remember this is the first ever Urdu translation and Commentary on Matan ul-Ājurrumiyyah.
How to read this book?
Like other books you can read it from cover to cover. It is very easy, brief and interesting. Like Arab students you can memorize its Arabic text which is not more than 15 pages in number. However when you teach or study any of the lessons of Durûs al-Lughah al-‘Arabiyyah li-Ghair al-Nâtiqîna Bihâ first identify the new grammar rules given in that lesson. To comprehend these rules in a lucid manner you may open the index of Tafhim ul-Ājurrumiyyah and find out the requisite rule in that exhaustive alphabetical list and read the entries given at the referred pages (both in original text as well as in commentary).
Is it available in the market?
The book is available at all the major book stalls in Srinagar like M/s Al-Qur’an Publications Maisuma, M/s Al-Haramain, Maisuma Gaw Kadal, M/s Shah Brothers Rainawari, Srinagar. You can also contact al-Manar authorities for the same.
