السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته,
Below is a list of grammar rules that I’ve extracted from a work called النَحْوُ الْوَاضِحُ by Shaykhs Ali al-Jarim and Mustafa Ameen. I haven’t studied this book with any teachers, but I found out about it when I was studying another book that they wrote, ُالبَلاغَةُ الوَاضِحَة.
Every section in the book brings examples and then mentions the rules derived from them. I thought that it would be nice just to have a “cheat sheet” of rules I can go back to quickly review without having to flip through 400 pages of examples and discussion. I’ve tried to keep it to just the rules, adding examples only as necessary, because the expectation is that you’ve already studied it in detail and just need to recap things. If you don’t already know them, then head on to the Arabic grammar series and start from there.
Note: The numbers at the end of the headings are the page numbers where they are found in the original PDF. The rules are as mentioned by the original authors, unless stated otherwise. Also, the numbering of the rules is slightly off because some numerals were skipped in the original work. Lastly, I highly suggest that you not use this to actually cheat on an exam (I don’t think there’s any realistic way to fit 20+ pages into that small a space anyhow…)
الْجُمْلَةُ الْمُفِيْدَةُ (The beneficial sentence) 11
- The composite phrase that offers a complete benefit is called a جُمْلَة مُفِيْدَة (beneficial sentence), or also كَلام (speech)
- The جُمْلَة مفيدة could be composed of two words or more, and each word is considered to be part of it
