DETAILED DESCRIPTION

ABOUT QAMUS AL-MUHIT:
The title is a comprehensive Arabic dictionary. The dictionary called al-Qāmūs al-muī  was one of the most widely used in Arabic for nearly five centuries. The ‘author of the Qāmūs al-muī’ is widely known for his Arabic lexicon, which overshadows the astounding breadth of his writing.

 

Al-Qamus Al-Muhit ("The Surrounding Ocean"), al-Fayrūzabādī  acknowledges that the bulk of it was formed as a merger and compilation from two pre-existing dictionaries;

--- al-Muhkam; by Ibn Sida (d. 1066 CE),

--- al-ʿUbab al-Zakhir wa'l Lubab al-Fakhir (العباب الزاخر واللباب الفاخر); by Al-Saghani (died 1252). Al-Saghani's dictionary was an expansion of the al-Sihah dictionary of Al-Jawhari (died c. 1008), which is a core dictionary of medieval Arabic.

 

Initially upon the merger, Al-Fayrūzabādī 's dictionary was huge. He then greatly reduced its size by eliminating examples of usage, eliminating some grammatical aspects of usage, and leaving mostly only simple definitions, and eliminating some lesser-used definitions. He made it more concise with a set of terse but effective notation conventions. The abridgement was still a large and comprehensive dictionary occupying two large volumes in print. It proved to be much more popular with users than the huge Lisan al-ʿArab dictionary of Ibn Manzur (died 1312) which contains a huge number of quotations and examples of usage.

 

 

 

ABOUT THIS PRINT:
This print is an expanded and modernised volume that contains extensive index of the words that can be found in this dictionary. Very thin paper and easy to carry one volume which is ideal for day to day usage, though it is almost 2 KG. It contains many annotations for ideal cross reference of words in other dictionaries.

 

 

ABOUT IMAM AL-FIRUZABADI:
His name was Abu Tahir Majid al-Din Muhammad Ibn Ya'qub Ibn Muhammad Ibn Ibrahim al-Shirizi al-Al-Fayrūzabādī born in 729 Hijri / 1329 was an lexicographer and was the compiler of a comprehensive Arabic dictionary. The dictionary, called al-Qāmūs al-muī  was one of the most widely used in Arabic for nearly five centuries. The ‘author of the Qāmūs al-muī’ is widely known for his Arabic lexicon, which overshadows the astounding breadth of his writing.

 

He was born in Fars, Persia, and educated in Shiraz, Wasit, Baghdad and Damascus. He lived in Jerusalem for ten years and then travelled in Western Asia and Egypt, before settling in Mecca in 1368 CE. He remained there for the bulk of the next three decades, spending some time in Delhi in the 1380s CE, and finally leaving Mecca in the mid-1390s CE to return to Baghdad, Shiraz (where he was received by Timur), and finally travelling to Ta'izz in Yemen. In 1395 CE, he was appointed chief qadi (judge) of Yemen by Al-Ashraf Umar II, who had summoned him from India a few years before to teach in his capital. Al-Ashraf also married a daughter of Al-Fayrūzabādī , something which added to Al-Fayrūzabādī 's prestige and power in the royal court.

 

During the later years of his life, Al-Fayrūzabādī  converted his house at Mecca into a school of Maliki law and established three teachers in it. Al-Fayrūzabādī  produced many writings;
