Tamrīn al Ṭullāb fi Ṣinā'ah al I'rāb
The i'rāb system allows for precise and detailed grammatical analysis and is an essential aspect of Arabic grammar. It helps establish grammatical agreement between words in a sentence and ensures correct syntax. Mastery of i'rāb is crucial for understanding and producing grammatically accurate Arabic sentences.
In this 6 week course, the text Tamrīn al Ṭullāb fi Ṣinā'ah al I'rāb by Sheikh Muḥammad Rāghib al Ṭabbākh (d.1370ah) will be covered. It is a short elementary text that explains how to perform i'rāb.
