    Default hidayatun nahw

    Considering the fact that I was making some mistakes in the tarkeeb, I decided to put it on hiatus, and commence a different project, a rough translation/notes of hidayatun nahw.

    http://hidayatunnahw.wordpress.com/

    As I have stated there, I tried to keep the translation as literal as possible, at the expense of english grammar, because I feel that this facilitates studying the text in its original arabic. This is not meant to be an independent english work on arabic grammar; rather, it is intended to be a supplement to studying the original text.

    What do you think? Please inform me of any errors.

    I am the wrong person to seek advice from regarding this, for I am just a jahil. It would probably be better to consult with your instructors, but since you asked, I will try to answer. If you already know arabic, isn't it just a question of improving your english to be able to translate effectively? I imagine a good book on english grammar/writing style coupled with Lane's Lexicon and your knowledge of arabic, will go a long way towards helping you in translating a classical book.

    In terms of detail nahw and hairline differences in words + particles in regards to meaning and usage you can study Sharh ibn Aqeel, this goes really in-depth.

    This goes into aspects of waw haliya etc, it helps in your english translation alot, sometimes you can get away with translating a english word in a manner, but to know its different usages improves translation quality significantly.

    Other books: Shudhurudh dhahab, Qatr un nada

    Allah knows best!

    The way I am doing it is pretty messy and disorganized. What I mean by formatting is to make the appearance better, through consistency in titles/headings, fonts, spacing, etc., and editing it for spelling and obvious errors.

    Default Arabic Books

    Is the Sharh of Ibn Aqeel available in Urdu?

    Ma assalam
