The Clear Grammar on the Fundamental of the Arabic Language (Vol 1-3)
Write your review
The book in your hands, "An-Nahwul Waadhib", is one which, though not from the classical books of Nahw, having instead been written some time shortly before 1949, has acquired a position in the syllabus of many Madaaris and Daarul Ulooms throughout the world. This is because An-Nahwul Waadhib presents Nahw in a very simple, clear, straightforward way that is easy for the students to understand, and at the same time, the format of the book and the methodology it employs makes it easy for the teachers to teach it.
An-Nahwul Waadhih puts a great deal of emphasis on (exercises or drills), so the reader will find that each and every lesson in this book is followed up by a number of different exercises which the student is required to complete. The reason behind this is that by having the students do these many exercises, the lessons learnt are in fact being "drilled" into their heads so that they will not forget
Furthermore, An-Nahwul Waadhih also gives readers the various Qawaa`id (fundamentals) of Nawh in a list form, with a few Qawaa`id being presented after each lesson for easier memorisation. A total of 183 Qawaa`id are mentioned in this book.
An-Nahwul Waadhih also touches upon Al-I`raab, which is a simpler, more basic form of what is known as "Tarkeeb". These lessons and exercises on I`raab are meant to test the student's overall knowledge of Arabic in general, and Nahw in particular, as well as to deepen the student's understanding of what he is reading by analysing the sentences.
Lastly, there is a branch of Arabic that many Nahw books do not focus on but which is given a great deal of attention in An-Nahwul Waadhih, and that is the branch of Al-Inshaa'. Inshaa' refers to the art of writing - not writing as in bettering your handwriting, but writing in the sense of "authoring", learning how to form your own sentences, and then your own articles, and from there you may even be able to write your own books in Arabic.
This Inshaa', in An-Nahwul Waadhih, is done through the medium of the teacher; hence, it is required that the teacher who teaches this book must himself be well-versed in Arabic so as to properly guide the student through the exercises on Inshaa', teaching them how to form sentences, how to choose not just the correct, but the most suitable of words, which dictionaries to use, how to phrase every sentence so that it flows smoothly, fluently, etc.
May Allaah Ta`aalaa accept this effort and make it a means of benefit to all,
