Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 11-28

Monotheistic invitation of all the prophets were associated with a variety of language conflict and hostility that different doubts can be outlined one of their most basic plans. Conflict (doubt) of Being human of the Prophets and also denying their relationship with God is of the most pervasive doubts about the many prophets. Analyzing the Quran verses shows that the doubt of being human about the prophet is of the most fundamental human suspicions of the Prophet, and other charges are derivatives of this doubt. Today, a lot of doubts and accusations in the form of scientific debate arise about the Islam Prophet that derivative of this doubt. In Holy Quran, being human doubt of the prophet is narrated specifically for the Islam prophet and generally for other prophets. Analyzing of the Quran verses shows that unbelief, obstinacy and stubbornness, ignorance about the different levels of human beings is of important motives of opponents and designers of doubt.

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 29-60

The city of Andalusia lies to the east of Toledo and to the west of the city of Cantabria in the Andalusian region, occupied by the Muslims under the leadership of Tariq ibn Ziad in 93 AH / 711 AD. It was settled by Muslims, mostly Berbers who reconstructed the city, and then became one of the important cities of occupation, led by Bani al-Nun and the family of Bani Labun. The city fell in the hands of Christians in 478 AH / 1085 AD.
After the fall of Toledo in 478 AH / 1085 AD, it became a central point of the Islamic-Christian conflict, and the confrontations continued until the middle of the sixth century AH / 1200 AD when the conflict was finally resolved in favor of the Christians by the defeat of Muhideen in 568 AH. After this, the Christians controlled most of the region of central Andalusia.

تُعتبر تقانتا الإدهاش والتكثيف من أهمّ تقانات القصّة القصيرة جدًّا، فعنصر الإدهاش يأتي في القصّة القصيرة جدًّا كخاتمة تتّضح فيها معالم القصّة ورؤى القاصّ، ومن سمات هذا العنصر وخصائصه هو أنّه يأتي مخالفا لسياق الحركة الدّلاليّة للحكاية وبهذا يكون مغايرا ومربكا لأفق انتظار القارئ، كما أنّ تقانة التكثيف هي التي تميّز هذا الجنس الأدبي من غيره من الأجناس الأدبيّة. انطلاقا من هذه الأهميّة جاءت هذه الدراسة لتسلّط الضوء على هاتين التقنيتين في الأعمال القصصيّة لـ"جمعة الفاخري" بهدف معرفة حجم إسهامات هاتين التقنيتين في نجاح القصّة القصيرة جدًّا عند أحد أعلامها في المغرب العربي، ونظرا إلى كثرة كتابات جمعة الفاخري في هذا الجنس الأدبي فقد ركّزت الدراسة على مجموعتي "عصير ثرثرة" و"سحابة مسك" كنموذجٍ لباقي أعماله القصصيّة، وتقوم هذه الدراسة على المنهج الوصفي- التحليلي لكشف مواقع هاتين التقنيتين، ثم بيان دورهما في إنجاح عمليّة القصّ السردي عند الكاتب. وقد اتّضح لنا أنّ تقانة "الإدهاش" كانت حاضرة وبقوّة في قصص جمعة الفاخري القصيرة جدًّا، وأنّ هذه التقانة تنتج عن الإضمار والغموض والحذف والتخييل وترك البياضات الفارغة واصطناع لغة المفارقة و... لخلخلة ميثاق التلقي وإرباك القارئ وتبديد أفق انتظاره وتوقعه، هذا بالإضافة إلى تقانة التكثيف التي ساهمت في إضفاء الحركيّة والضغط المعنائي الناتج عن كثرة المضمون في قالب اللفظ الذي يختاره القاصّ، كما تنوّعت أشكال التكثيف عند الفاخري ما بين تكثيف دلالي وبنائي وسيكولوجي. وعند مناقشة الأساليب البلاغية والفنية في قصص الكاتب وجدنا أنها كانت متنوعة ما بين التناص والحوار والانزياح والتضاد، والتناص لدى الفاخري وظف خدمة للتكثيف، فيما وجدنا الحوار والانزياح والتضاد قد خدمت تقانة الإدهاش ودورها.

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 89-104

If the argumentation -from a linguistic perspective- is a prominent feature in the language of natural discourse, the fact of inference of this discourse is that it's an argumentative inference, not logical demonstrative , Accordingly, it will depend on various speech strategies and various stylistic techniques that represent the aspects of the inductive structure of argumentation. The linguistic structure in which the manifestations have an argumentative function, which directs the addressee to deduce the appropriate result for the speaker intent. In this context, the research seeks to clarify the aspects of the argumentative inference in the story of the Prophet Suleiman and the Queen of Saba'a , and statement of the argumentative functions which the structure of pronounced was implied it, then reach the intentions of the narrative discourse in the Holy Quran.

The aesthetic use of scientific terminology and the manipulation of words and letters in the office of Ibn Nabata

Ahmed Karimi; Syed Mahmoud Mirzaei Al-Husayni; Ayad Nisi

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 105-136

Ibn-e- Nubata lived in the era of tents using the virtuosity of words and the decoration of words and recitation of the literature in general literature and poetry especially. The poets have become more eloquent than their virtues in their productions, and the resort to industry and cost has become a prominent feature in contemporary literature and a far-off course to highlight the literary ability and linguistic richness of poets and writers.
Ibn-e- Nubata Al mesry was not immune to this tendency. But it is going to be treated and swallowed to become a distinctive character of his poems. Sometimes they are tempted by the verbal enhancers and employ them to press some of his poems and we are exposed to it once, as he manipulates the words and the letters, separates them, interrupts them sometimes, and pronounces them to produce new words that enrich his poetic output, And to be a manifestation of his linguistic ability and flexibility in the conduct of words and their manipulation and manipulation, And may see him in many of his poems tend to language terms and borrow from the poetic material to express his concerns and what is boiling in his chest of emotions and pain, and to whiten the meaning or import in a new way that makes the reader pause a little to stand on the poet Murad. It is not hidden to the reader that the study of these terms reveal some of the hidden ideas and ideas and reveals the extent of his knowledge of the sciences that employed the terms in his poetry, and show how the poet was able to employ the grammar and especially the grammar to increase meanings and generate old meanings and create Poetic images
Hence, this research depends on the use of terms in poetry, focusing on grammar and morphology, as well as manipulation of letters and words.

of the issues of interest in poetry and literature that has always been raised throughout literary history is the issue of sophistication and grievance of society that has not been diminished in any period of the literary history, but has always been a poet who, for some reason, The phrase "lack of co-ordination with the society, domination of the ruler and failure in love, and ... the way to rumor and complaints, and this phenomenon, especially in a period in which the rulers of the community do not have sufficient authority to manage the society and their personal interests Because poetry has a strong connection with the intellectual, political, and social reality of society, and in each of the stages, Ibn al-Nohas, as one of Aleppo's poets who enjoyed a high literary taste over the poets of his age, managed to transform his social realities from the realistic viewpoint and his climate of truth. , When the Ottoman rulers dominated the country, as well as through his meditative themes, manifested his sincere spirit by expressing the annoying cries of love failure.

Fouad Fayyad Shatayat

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 259-292

The study examines rhythm patterns and consistency of the text of praise of Bishr Ibn Abi Kazem to Awes bin Haritha bins Al -Tai in the pre-Islamic era. It also seeks to establish external rhythms : weight, synonyms, repetition or coherence, poetic structure of sounds , and the idea that empowered and motivated the poet to praise Awes Al-Tai . The study reveals that all indicators of the points listed are part of the external rhythm of the poem. However, the internal rhythm of the poem consists of the plot or spirit that spread and add flavor to the poem, organize and develop the idea in ascending or horizontal levels within the architectural backbone of the poem: from A-Z (prelude to the end of the poem). The research has two parts: The first addresses the general concept of the external and internal rhythms. The second covers the role of rhythm and repetition in shaping the poetic experience of Bishr ibn Kazem in praising Awes Ibn Harith Al-Tai, and the aesthetics or state of art of both the internal and external rhythm.

The atmosphere in which journalists work continues to develop their work, and we certainly attribute this to the performance of the medium and the level of public exposure to it.
The research problem is based on the ambiguity of the relationship between the problems experienced by workers in satellite channels and the level of exposure of the public to satellite channels. Perhaps the most important objectives are to prove the relationship between the problems of workers in satellite channels and the level of exposure of the public to the satellite channels. Adopted by the same selection of (222) members of the public as a prime eye provided they follow the same channels in which the media work. Using the means of verification of the hypotheses, the researcher found that 61% of the workers in satellite channels have problems with them, while we have a relationship between the follow-up media and the contents of the coverage remains the atmosphere of the work of journalists.

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 419-438

Composition ability and creativeness of poets expresses in the extent of their ability in innovation and using poetic imagination forms and covering concepts and ideas and also feelings that they are intending transfer to our mind, in imaginative covering and locating emotion and feeling versus that thoughts and implicit mental concepts. Therefore during their poetic innovation they are bridling the speech and employing language, words and perceptions and changing it in specific style. By using this kind of style the can mention concepts and facts distinct from superficial form of speech and words that are sorted inside of that style.That is high in comparison to language that is used in none poetry and scientific documents.
Composition ability is based on elements that skillful poets consciously need them to use in structure of literary contexts. Some kind of this elements are: ''rational displacements'', metaphors, imagination forms and creating inspirational poetic environment.From this point of view Badr Skakir al- Sayyab poem; Pioneer Arab contemporary literature poet distinct from other poets poetry because he by the aim of using literary elements and techniques banished his poetry from straight concepts and scientific and mere intellectual speech.
This gave the poet opportunity to create poetic environment and inspirational and indirect concepts to make the reader react rationally and associate mentally, while poetry of other poets such as Muhammad al-Maghut and Ahmed Matar(that is studied in this article) as a whole don't have this kind of characteristics.

Babik Mlaay; Mohamed Jawad Ismail Ghanmi; Abdulkarim Albagbesh

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 439-454

Eulogy is one of arenas of poetry temper testing. In this dominion, every poet, as much as his power and knowledge, gives a distinguished image of his adored’s goodness and excellencies. Undoubtedly, whatever the position of adored is superior, the poet’s eulogy and praise will be superior and more deserving. In the period of Abbasi, some poets, based on different motives, have chosen Ahlul-Bayt (Peace be upon them) as their adoreds, and have offered pleasant poets to the Literary arena for them. One of these famous admirers who has composed beautiful poems in praise of Ahlul-Bayt and has spoken about their prominent position as well, is Hommani Alawi. This research is done by descriptive analytical method and it is intended to study on one hand the expression of Ahlul-Bayt (Peace be upon them) in the poem of Hommani, on the other hand to investigate his poetic and artistic style in the eulogy arena.This study shows that, using verses of the Qur'an and prophetic hadiths and historical issues, Hommani has proved rightfulness of Ahlul-Bayt and by logical reasoning, reveals the true face of Ahlul-Bayt. In addition, he considers Ahlul-Bayt as only emancipator of human beings and friendship with them as welfare and he ends the hostility with Ahlul-Bayt to adversity.

Rashid AL-Din AL-Suri is considered one of the most eminent scholars on the medical level. However, he has not been given enough attention by historians. Therefore, we have to dust these giant figures and explain their virtue in providing medical services to the community using plants and discovering their functions. And during that time he was accompanied by a painter and with him dugs, pens and ink to draw the plant at all stages of its life.
It was based on the visual logic based on the accuracy of observation, inspection and follow-up, so it left us the legacy of civilization represented by the mobile medical school, which includes dozens of scientists and doctors, as well as many of his writings in this area, which benefited the Arab world very much.

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 9-30

This study tackles political accusation in the context of Obama-Romney first presidential debate 2012. The participants in the political discourse exploit various pragmatic strategies in order to take over their opponents' arguments. Political accusation, here, is dealt with as a process rather than a product for the operationality of analyzing the data under study. It is political on the principal ground that it tackles political issues. Accordingly, this study sets itself the task of investigating how political accusation takes place in the aforementioned context. It aims, first, at identifying the pragmatic structure of political accusation, second, detecting the pragmatic strategies used by the presidential candidates in the data under scrutiny and, third, tracing whether a candidate's pragmatic strategies are different or not from the other candidate's pragmatic strategies as far as political accusation is concerned.
The hypotheses intended to be tested by this study are: first, the pragmatic structure of political accusation is composed of two stages: attack stage and defense stage, second, both stages are realized via various pragmatic strategies and, third, the use of pragmatic strategies are different from one candidate to another. For achieving the aims of the study and testing its hypotheses, an eclectic model is developed on the basis of various other models which are offered by other studies. This model is used to pragmatically analyze the data of the study. Besides, a statistic analysis by means of the percentage equation is conducted to quantitatively support the findings of the pragmatic analysis. The analyses of the data under study reveal that the hypotheses adopted are verified.

The Figure of the Mixedblood in Louise Erdrich’s Love Medicine

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 31-58

Native American people were encouraged by the U. S. government to leave the reservations during the 1950s and 1960s, as if the constant violation of treaty rights, compulsory attendance at boarding schools, and the near extinction of these people were not enough. Such historical, social, and cultural contexts influenced the themes and forms of works by American Indian writers who encouraged individuals to reject any sense of shame of their culture. In addition, their actions coincided with a return of the people to their traditions after the disappointment, mental illness, and loss of meaning of life resulted from the impact of the mainstream American society. Among these writers, Louise Erdrich (1954- ), a mixed-blood woman, became among the most celebrated authors. The trail blazed by N. Scott Momaday and Leslie Marmon Silko was followed by Erdrich in her writing as she shares the same interest in presenting characters who are trapped between Native traditions and white mainstream expectations.
Erdrich introduces many characters who struggle to have a voice, but they resolve their conflict by rejecting the sacrificial role assigned to mixed-blood figures, especially that of the nineteenth century. The mixed-blood figures in Love Medicine are to be seen as a source of power, something to be celebrated rather than mourned.
This paper is a part of an M.A. thesis entitled “The Cultural Crisis of Mixed-blood Figures in Indian-American Fiction: A Study of Selected Novels By N. Scott Momaday, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Louise Erdrich” prepared at the University of Al-Qadisiya, College of Education, Department of English

Analyzing the constituent elements of a narrative and representation of its governing rules help us in better understanding of mechanisms and relationships within the narrative elements. Since narratology is one of the main branches of structuralism, analyzing narrative structure of past texts and their evolution can be lead to valuable results and open new and different perspectives to audiences.Bayhaqi’s History is one of the basic texts in Persian prose. This research analyzes narrative structure of “The Tale of Afshin and Boudlof” from Bayhaqi's "History" based on the ideas of French structuralist, Gérard Genette.
The narrative levels of this work has been studied in interaction with the components of duration, mood, and voice) to uncover its specific narrative structure and Bayhaqi’s writing power in taking advantage of the possibilities of language and literary. Unlike believers in the idea that past proses of Persian literature just stories and narrations and they lack ordered structure and strong plot, this research shows the ordered structure and strong plot of the studied case according to ideas of Gérard Genette.

Adab Al-Kufa, 2018, Volume 1, Issue 36, Pages 73-86

The subject of this study is investigating eugenic or genetic improvement as one of the most important contemporary issues of practical ethnics. Statement of the problem is as the following: is promoting genetic structure of human race possible through genetic engineering and storage of sperms of men with outstanding features in sperm banks and implanting them into the uterus of women on large scale either naturally or through artificial insemination? Improving the quality of human race and eliminating or reducing genetic defects through control of behavioral and biological changes in the human genome, it’s being good or evil and morally and religiously acceptable, is an important issue that should be explored.
The main objective of this descriptive-analytical study is, in addition to critical investigation of immoral genetic evolution, presenting a new outlook of the comprehensive religion of Islam to achieve a clean and well-educated generation and remove the defects and genetic shortcomings to acquire an ideal society. The most important result of this research is that Islam confirms genetic engineering through different methods and, even, presents several recommendations in this regard. Ignoring moral principles, identity crisis, reinforcing racism, fall of genetic knowledge, possibility of mental and psychological problems, ignoring will power, and political and social abuses are most important critiques of genetic engineering which is done through controlling and changing human gnomes.
