ADV1617 Arabic Grammar (Al-Mufassal)

Module 6: Arabic Language

Unit 1: Arabic Grammar
Workshop: Arabic Composition

Overview

This module on Arabic grammar provides students with an opportunity to revise their knowledge of this oft-neglected area and develop expertise in the nuances of the language. For this purpose, al-Mufassal of Imam Zamakhshari, a masterpiece on the fundamentals Arabic grammar, will be studied. In addition, workshops in Arabic composition will take place throughout the year, as well as linguistic exposition of the books of hadith, Islamic law, and Quranic exegesis that are also taught in the Advanced level.

Al-Mufassal

About the Text

Commentators and critiques of classical works on Arabic grammar have noted that al-Mufassal is one of Zamakhshari’s most important, popular and best-known works. The Encyclopedia Britannica mentions that al-Mufassal was ‘celebrated for its concise but exhaustive exposition’ of the principles of Arabic grammar. The text is perhaps the most important grammatical work that is taught from the traditional syllabus, and is an authority on the Arabic language despite its conciseness and relatively late addition to the corpus.

About the Author

Abu al-Qasim Mahmud ibn Umar al-Zamakhshari was born in Zamakhshar in 467/ 1075. He was of Iranian origin and subscribed to the Mutazilite theological doctrine. He is considered to have reached the level of ijtihad in Arabic grammar, meaning that he will differ with Sibawayh and the Kufan and Basri schools on certain particulars of the language. He died in the city of Khwarezm (present day Uzbekistan/ Kazakhstan/ Turkmenistan) in 538 /1144.

  • Accurately detail the properties of the noun, verb, and particle
