Poetry Lesson 6: في مدخل الحمراء. Lesson 6B: العَروض


 Here’s a new lesson
Give it a try
Read very carefully

I’ll tell you why

We’re learning a science
Not dealt with before
With syllables, meters,

And metrics galore!

Consonants, vowels,
And analyzing feet
Sounds and rhythms

Emerging quite sweet

 And here we engage in
- A part that is fun!
Ears will resound with:

da, da, dan, da, dan

    faDiilata l-Shaykh حفظكم الله
    السلام عليكم

    This poem narrates a beautiful aspect of our Islaamic Heritage and History, but its joys are overturned to tragedies – at the poem narrates.

    The depth and mastery of your translation helps bring this aspect of Islaamic history to life.

    The mind and heart open up بإذن الله.

    جزاكم الله خيرا

    Dear respected Shaykh
    as salaam u alaikum
    A poem which has opened a window in the glorious past.
    A dars after a long wait
    I am sure its notes will give insight to many grammatic aspects.

    Wasalaam and damat barakatuka.

    فضيلة الشيخ – حفظكم الله
    السلام عليكم

    Poetry Dars 6B transforms our approach to Arabic Prosody and allows non-natives speakers of Arabic to learn fine, intricate aspects of poetry not learnt before.

    You have introduced us to a fascinating new science.

    جزاكم الله خيرا.

    Assalamu alaikum.
    These are beautiful notes about العَروض and البحْر. I hope Dr Sahib will continue teaching us in this style.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful knowledge.

    I recall requesting such a lesson be laid out for students a while back. It has finally arrived and my students have found it of immense benefit.

    I think this should be circulated widely online, in sha Allah. This will save me a lot of time when I teach poetry.

    Thank you so much.

    I pray your Ramadan is going well and that your worship and service is accepted. Amin.

    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

    The Lesson in 3arood was wonderful, exactly what I hoped for – I hope the Sheikh will find time in the future to explain other poetic metres as well.

    جزاكم الله خيرا
    والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
