al-Muʼayyad al-Shīrāzī and Fatimid daʻwa poetry : a case of commitment in classical Arabic literature by Tahera Qutbuddin( )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al-Mu'ayyad al-Shirazi (d. 470/1078) was a medieval Arabic-Islamic scholar and poet committed to the Fatimid religio-political ideology. Chief missionary for their Caliph-Imams, he founded the dynamic tradition of "Fatimid da'wa (religious mission) poetry" that flourished after him for a thousand years through the succeeding Tayyibi da'wa and continues to thrive today." "This study examines the manner in which al-Mu'ayyad's mission informed the aesthetic rules, motifs, structures, genres, motives, addressees, and aspirations of his poetry. It analyzes the characteristics of al-Mu'ayyad's verse that render it distinctive, above all, its use of a unique form of esoteric tawil-based religious symbolism - metaphor, in fact, as manifestation, where what appears to be metaphor is the theological reality of the Imam."--BOOK JACKET
A treasury of virtues : sayings, sermons and teachings of ʻAlī al-Qāḍī al-Quḍāʼi : with the one hundred proverbs attributed to al-Jāhiẓ by ʻAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib( )

A Treasury of Virtues is a collection of sayings, sermons, and teachings attributed to Ali ibn Abi Talib (d. 40H/661AD), cousin and son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad, and fourth caliph. Ali was an acknowledged master of Arabic eloquence and a renowned sage of Islamic wisdom. Through proverbs and aphorisms, sermons and speeches, prayers and supplications, epistles and contracts, testimonials and homilies, verse and dialogues, it provides instruction on how to be a decent human being. And it combines these ethical teachings with religious exhortations and preparation for eternal life in the hereafter. Moreover, the lessons of the text are clothed in the cadenced parallelisms of a consummate oral culture, and the vivid metaphors of the Arabian desert. Appealing to the addressee's higher nature, they also beguile his aesthetic sensibilities, integrating art and edification in an exquisite package of verbal ingenuity. Of the many compilations of Ali's words, A Treasury of Virtues arguably possesses the broadest compass of genres, and the largest variety of themes. The shorter One Hundred Proverbs is also a compilation of Ali's words. Attributed to al-Jahiz ("the father of Arabic prose"), it has a celebrity status in its own category and its pithy one-liners are quotable quotes of the finest order. This volume presents the first English translation of both these important texts, with a new critical edition based on several original manuscripts

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ahmad ibn Hanbal (d. 241 H/855 AD), renowned for his profound knowledge of hadith -- the reports of the Prophet's sayings and deeds -- is a major figure in the history of Islam. Ibn Hanbal was famous for living according to his own strict interpretation of the Prophetic model and for denying himself even the most basic comforts in a city then one of the wealthiest in the word, and despite belonging to a prominent family. His piety and austerity made him a folk hero, especially after his principled resistance to the attempts of two Abbasid caliphs to force him to accept rationalist doctrine. His subsequent imprisonment and flogging became one of the most dramatic episodes of medieval Islamic history. Ibn Hanbal's resistance influenced the course of Islamic law, the rise of Sunnism, and the legislative authority of the caliphate. tells the formidable life tale of one of the most influential Muslims in history. 'Virtues of the Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal' is a translation of the biography of Ibn Hanbal penned by the Baghdad preacher, scholar, and storyteller Ibn al-Jawzi (d. 597 H/1200 AD)."--Publisher description
