Description :

Al-Tuhfah Al-Saniyyah bi Sharh Al-Muqaddimah Al-Ajroomiyyah
: This work is a full bilingual rendition of Muhammad Muhi al-Dīn ibn ʿAbd al-Hamid’s (d. 1393h) renowned commentary on Ibn Ajurum’s (d. 723h) primer entitled al-Tuhfat al-Saniyah bi sharh al-Muqadimmat al-Ajrumiyyah with supplementary notes from other commentaries.

ʿUmar bin al-Khaṭṭab, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu, said, “Learn the Arabic language, it will produce intellect and increase you in respectable behaviour.” [Shuʿab al-Īman of al-Bayhaqi, 1551].

Ibn Hazm said, “Anyone who seeks knowledge of nahw and the Arabic language with the intention of implementing the Shariʿah and understanding the Words of Allah, the Most High, and the words of His Prophet, and to have a broader understanding of the religion; then this person will have a great reward and a lofty status by which he will not be surpassed by anyone.” [Rasaʾil ibn Hazm 3/162]

Imam al-Suyuti, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu, said, “Those who explained this book (al-Ajrumiyyah), such as al-Makudi, al-Raʿi and others, have described its author as being an Imam in Nahw, and possessing many blessings and benefits. An example of this is his Muqadimmah which has been extremely beneficial for beginners in studying nahw.” [Bugyat al-Wu’at fi Tabaqat al-Lughawiyin wa al-Nuhat 1/238].

Ibn Haj said, “Proof that this book is beneficial is that Allah has given it acceptance, to the extent that this has become the very first book (for beginners) that is studied prior to the commencement of reading the Qurʾan al-Azim. This Muqadimmah will give you benefits and understanding in the shortest time possible.” [Al-Taliqatu al-Jaliyyatu ʿala Sharh al-Ajrumiyyah, p. 43].

About this Print :

The main purpose of this translation is twofold :

Firstly to aid teachers in delivering classes on al-Tuhfat al-Saniyyah. Having access to a translation will allow the teacher to spend more time in explaining the book rather than preparing a translation. Furthermore it can help to bridge the gap between the stronger and weaker students in a class (in terms of their Arabic comprehension), which sometimes gives difficulty to the teacher in assessing the level of teaching which should be delivered.

Secondly, to serve as a bridge for students who may have learned the basics of Arabic but are not at a level yet to read an Arabic grammar book cover to cover purely in Arabic without difficulty. Depending on the level of the student they can read the Arabic and review their understanding with the English or use the English as an aid whilst reading the Arabic.

In order to fulfil this, the complete Arabic text has been provided and the translation has been kept as literal as possible, with some exceptions. See images below for sample pages.
