مبادئ قواعد اللغة العربية : نحو مير
Nahw Mir: A Primer in Arabic Grammar
Throughout history, thousands of Muslim scholars [ʿUlamā’] in the Indian Subcontinent and Central Asia have commenced their studies with the work ‘Naḥw Mīr’. When study of the Persian language dwindled in India, many scholars took it upon themselves to translate this work into the Urdu language. With the introduction of the Niẓāmī Syllabus among English speaking people, the need arose for a simple translation of this concise yet immensely beneficial text. This text is preferred over modern grammar books because of its simplicity and brevity.
The work ‘Naḥw Mīr’ is authored by al-Sayyid al-Sharīf ʿAlī b. Muḥammad al-Jurjānī [740 – 816 AH] who was born in the city of Jurjān on the 22nd of Shaʿbān in the year 740AH. He attained his religious education from the foremost authorities of his time, namely al-ʿAllāma Mubārak Shāh and al-ʿAllāma Akmal al-Dīn Muḥammad b. Maḥmūd al-Bābartī. Under the guardianship of such reputable luminaries, he became known by two epithets; “al-Sayyid al-Sanad” and “Mīr Sayyid”.
