The An-Nukat al-Ḥisān fī sharḥ ghāyat al-iḥsān of Abū Ḥayyān an-Naḥwī al-Andalusī : a critical edition with an introductory study
This thesis consists of an annotated edition of a manuscript of Abu Hayyan an-Nahwi al-Andalusi and an introductory study. The introduction falls into three main sections, the first being a study of Abu Hayyan's life and the characteristic features which contributed in forming his character like his upbringing, education, teachers, belief and knowledge. We concluded this section by pointing out his extensive and varied knowledge not only of Arabic and Islamic disciplines but also his knowledge of foreign languages, Turkish, Persian, Ethiopic and Coptic. We also mentioned the high status he occupied as one of the most distinguished scholars of his time and probably one of the most outstanding Arab grammarians for his works on the study of Arabic grammar and the foreign languages.
