This volume is a "sampling" of the works of 18 living poets whom the author knew in Lahore, Pakistan between 1959 and 1962, and whom he considers to be representative of the style and quality of the "gazel" genre. Each selection appears in Urdu (Arabic script), with its English translation, and explanatory notes. The Introduction contains brief biographical descriptions of the poets. Appendix One discusses Urdu poetics--(1) the types of poetic composition, (2) rhyme, (3) scansion, (4) measure and meter, (5) catalexis, and (6) an analysis of the meters used in the text. The appended Vocabulary is presented in Urdu and phonemic transcription, with English glosses. The authors suggest that this volume may be used by students on the second year level who have finished "a Course in Urdu." (See ed 013 435-7.) Two other works in the Urdu language, forthcoming from the same project at the Institute of Islamic Studies at McGill University, are "An Urdu Newspaper Reader" and "An Urdu Newspaper Wordcount."

The place of reason in 'Abduh's theology : its impact on his theological system and views by Harun Nasution( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reason is an important focus-word in 'Abduh's worldview and has a great influence' on his theological system and news. Because of his position of ascribing' great powers to reason and limited- functions to revelation, his system and views are in glaring contradiction with those of the Ash'ariyah who have a distrust in the power of reason and great reliance on revelation. His system and views, on the other hand, greatly resemble those of the Mu'tazilah who have been well-known for their high appreciation of the power of reason and little reliance on revelation. With those of the maturidiyah in both their Samarqandi and Bukhara branches, who adopt an intermediate position pertaining to the power of reason and the function of revelation, Abduh' s theological system and views have many disagreements. Contrary to the prevalent opinion Abduh is neither an Ash'arI, nor a maturidi, nor an eclectic. He is rather a Mu'tazili." --
