Imdad us Sarf (Etymology) is from amongst the hugely popular series teaching the rules of Arabic Grammar. Essential for anyone desiring to learn the Arabic Language.
Arabic Grammar is a very difficult subject and can sometimes pose great difficulties. The author has done the formidable task of selecting the most widely used rules in Arabic Grammar and presented them in a simple, clear and understandable manner. This book comes from a series which is one of the most widely used manuals for Arabic Grammar in Mosques and Educational Institutions in the United Kingdom.
Imdad-us-Sarf and Imdad-un-Nahv are books relating to the Arabic Grammar. These have specially been written with the English speaking students in mind. The examples and terms of grammar are in Arabic but they are also explained and translated into easy English. A number of well known scholars have received these books and have found them overwhelmingly interesting and useful. By the grace of Allah Almighty, Imdad-us-Sarf and Imdad-un-Nahv have been greatly acknowledged and widely accepted, Alhamdulillah. I wholeheartedly congratulate M. I. H. Pirzada on his excellent contribution to the educational world and humbly ask Allah Almighty to fulfil his aims and targets in the best possible way. ---Justice Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari, (1918-1998), Justice of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
While teaching an Arabic Course at Eaton Hall, England, I was delighted to find Imdad-us-Sarf and Imdad-un-Nahv, two books that follow the same traditional and time tested model of success for beginners of Arabic Language that I use in my own courses. The students quickly acquired copies and used them to great benefit as supplements to my lessons. They are an excellent place to start for new students setting out on the wondrous journey to understanding the language of the Qur’an. ---Shaykh Hamza Yusuf Hanson, Zaytuna Institute, California, USA.
Although the respected author has basically written this book for the novice students, it could equally be helpful to teachers and scholars. Imdad-us-Sarf is the synthesis of ancient and modern books on this topic. The form of writing is so simple and attractive that even a beginner can understand the rules quite easily. End of chapter revision exercises are also of a great help in understanding the Glorious Qur’an. I pray that Allah rewards the author for his services to Islam.
