This is a classical Arabic text dealing with the Seerah of the Prophet ﷺ which the author Dr V Adbur Rahim has treated with extensive lexical and grammatical annotation to help readers fully comprehend the text. This and his other books based on annotated Quranic and hadeeth texts, reflect the author’s conviction that the best way to teach Arabic grammar, is to expose the students to living texts of the language. He likens this methodology of teaching the language, to a conducted tour of an ancient, historical site.
