Assalamu 'alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

More than 15 years ago I purchased at an Iranian bookshop in Cape Town a two volume compendium of grammatical and logical treatises (mutun) entitled: جامع المقدمات مع التصحيح والتعليق، الشيخ محمد على المدرّس الأفغاني (or Jaami' al-Muqaddimaat in short).

The first volume contains the following 9 mutun:

(1) Kitab al-Amthilah
(2) Kitab Sharh al-Amthilah
(3) Kitab Sarf Mir
(4) Kitab al-Tasrif
(5) Kitab Sharh al-Tasrif
(6) Kitab 'Awamil al-Jurjani
(7) Kitab 'Awamil Manthumah
(8) Kitab 'Awamil Mulla Muhsin
(9) Kitab Sharh al-'Awamil fi al-Nahw

The second volume contains the following 6 mutun:

(10) Kitab al-Kubra fi al-Mantiq
(11) Kitab Adaab al-Mut'allimin
(12) Kitab al-Hidayah fi al-Nahw
(13) Kitab Siyagh Mushkilah
(14) Kitab Sharh al-Anmudhaj
(15) Kitab al-Samadiyyah

These, of course, are only some of the Arabic linguistic works studied in the Iranian/Persian. We also notice some overlap with the Indo-Pak Subcontinent, South-East Asian, Turkish/Ottoman Traditions. We also notice that the Hidayah al-Nahw is also part of Iranian/Persian ArabicTradition but they call by the name of "al-Hidayah fi al-Nahw". The good thing about this version of the Hidayah al-Nahw is that it comes with explanatory comments and annotations all in Arabic. Moreover, the Sharh al-Anmudhaj (by al-Zamakhshari) and al-Samadiyyah make up for two thirds of the second volume (with each volume comprising about 600 pages) which makes these two works quite extensive.

So all-and-all, I think that the Jaami' al-Muqaddimaat is quite a useful work to have, and comprises an entire grammatical (morphological & syntactic) and logical curriculum with numerous mutun all in one.

Assalaamu Alaykum,

Shaykh Amr, do you know anywhere where I can find Sarf Meer separately,
I used to have an urdu and persian copy, But I was looking for a separate arabic copy.

It was one of the most popular and persian beginner's sarf texts in the indo-pak, although not so much now.

Jzk.

Assalamu'Alaykum wa Ramatullahee wa Barakaatuhu,

I found this link to a pdf copy of the manuscript in Urdu and Arabic. Here is the link:
http://al-mostafa.info/data/arabic/depot3/gap.php?file=i001644.pdf

If you type Sarf Meer in Arabic in google there are numerous hits to choose from. Hope this helps.

Wassalamu'Alaykum wa Ramatullahee wa Barakaatuhu,

Ihsaan

Asslamu Alaikum,

Dear Ustad Amr,

Could you tell us where one could buy:
جامع المقدمات مع التصحيح والتعليق، الشيخ محمد على المدرّس الأفغاني

I have found an online copy but the quality is awful.

Jazakallah Khair,
