Zeyd bin Sabit's Farāiz and Comments by Abu'z-Zinad Mansur KOÇİNKAĞ  

One of the old law/fiqh texts is Farāiz which is thought to be written by Zaid ibn Thābit (d. 45/665). In many classic texts it has been refered to this book and it is mentioned that Zaid ibn Thābit's expertising on the ilm al farāiz. But our findings show that many of researchers who study on the history of codificaditon of Islamic law have not seen this book. In this study, because of the importance of the book, we publish Zaid's Farāiz and the comments written in very early period by Abu'z-Zinad (d. 130/748) on it. Thus, Risāla al Farāiz, one of the oldest fiqh texts written in the period of the Sahāba and expounded in the period of the Tābiūn, will be present to the interest of researchers.

"Ear" And "Sound" Expressıons Representatıons in the Qur'an Ayşe Betül ORUÇ  

The ear is one of our sensory organs that allow us to perceive our surroundings. We perceive with it the voices that the objects possess by means of the waves within the mass of air surrounding us. In this sense, the ear has an important value for being. In the Qur'an, besides being an ear or a sensory organ, it reveals a person who reflects his level of consciousness and perception, revealing his awareness. It is not just the voices heard; the ear is special importance in understanding what is being said and what is said. Other sense organs and mold are mentioned together because of the feature. Of course, the word "voice" is also on the agenda when the ear is concerned. The verses found at the base of the basic qualities that man should possess present important dynamics about sound. Beyond being a symptom of voice being an inherent symptom, the latest discovery is pointing to the dimension of telling the apocalypse. This study tries to show in what context the hearing aid ear is expressed in the verses and its distinctive features, and its associated value, as well as its inherent value.

The Question Of Translation Of The Ambiguous Statements In The Qur'an Osman KARA  

The style and style of expression of the Qur'an is not chronological and detailed, especially in short stories and historical events. This is the fact that some people, places and community names are not mentioned in the Qur'an. The identification of these ambiguities is possible with narrations. For this reason, the ambiguities in the Qur'an have been clarified with the help of the narrations in the commentaries and in the works on the subject. This article deals with how to interpret whether narrations in quotations are taken into account when interpreting ambiguities in the Qur'an.

Could Māsarjawayh In The Records Of Ibn Djuljul Be The Same Person Māsarjīs In The Records Of Nadīm? Levent ÖZTÜRK Samet ŞENEL

Ibn Djuljul from Andalusia who wrote in the Western Islamic World and Nadīm from Baghdād who wrote in the Eastern Islamic World, give information about lots of physicians and translators in their books that contributed significantly to history of science. Both authors write their books at same time or very close time. Sometimes they offer similar information, but sometimes they provide different information.

One of the physicians whom Ibn Djuljul mentioned in his book, Māsarjawayh lived at the times of Umayyads. Nadīm gives information about Māsarjīs who lived at the times of Abbāsids. However, in the course of centuries, some authors combined the knowledge about these two people by giving reference to Ibn Djuljul’s and Nadīm’s work and represented as the same person. Accordingly, most of the modern scholars mentioned the two authors as a substitute.
This paper wants to keep track of this confusion and wants to clarify whether Māsarjawayh who was mentioned by Ibn Djuljul and Māsarjīs who was told by Nadīm are the same person or not.

A Field Research On The Implementation Of The Lesson Of Arabic Language Teaching Program (Tekirdağ (Turkey)/Süleymanpaşa district as a model) Osman ARPAÇUKURU  

Imam Hatip schools (religious vocational schools) in Turkey have been taught teaching Arabic for many years. However, the objectives of learning Arabic have not yet been realized. The Education Council of the Ministry of Education prepares educational plans and programs for Arabic lessons in order to increase the quality of Arabic language teaching, the first of these programs was in 1973. This research is a field study carried out in 2016 on how to implement the educational programs prepared in 2011 for Arabic lessons in Imam Hatip schools, and the problems facing the teacher in practical reality. The scope of the research is limited to Tekirdağ Anadolu Religious High School for boys, Süleymanpaşa Anadolu Religious High School for girls, Süleymanpaşa Religious Secondary school, and the teachers working in these schools. The research was based on the views of those educators as to how the educational programmes for Arabic lessons and the problems they faced during their exercise were implemented. The research was formulated through interviews with teachers. The results of the research according to the data received from the teachers were processed in the statistical program SPSS and then converted to frequency values and percentage values. These values were presented in tabular form. As a result of the findings, it was seen that most of the teachers did not read the Arabic lesson teaching program they were practicing, and they were unaware of the program’s vision, approach and goals; and they did not understand the program’s approach, vision, and objectives. Moreover, it was understood that the minds of the teachers were not clear about whether the Arabic language was a foreign language lesson or a religious vocational lesson, that the teaching practices and behaviors of teachers are incompatible with the educational program and they also had one view that the goals of the Arab lesson were largely unfulfilled. After the main results have been revealed and discussed, finally, following the disputed results, some suggestions were made to increase the quality of teaching Arabic such as making Arabic an effective, active and influential element in the lives of students and teachers through various awards and scholarships and the examination of Arabic as a foreign language in the university entrance examinations as an element of motivation and quality. In addition, in order to improve the quality of the Arabic teacher, we have made the Arabic exams as periodic, an increase in salaries according to the teachers’ receivables score, the continuation of in-service trainings, etc.

Some explanations put forward here should be evaluated having regard to theories of appearance and manifestation.

The Translation Problem Of The “بصر/ba-sa-ra” Verb And its Derıvatıves in Turkısh Quran Translatıons Habip GÜL  

“بصر/Ba-sa-ra” verb and it’s derivatives constitutes an important place in the Qur'an.

Six weeks feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the utilization of maize offal, rice offal and local sorghum beer residue as feedstuffs for Japanese quails. Ten percent (10%) each of maize offal, rice offal and local sorghum beer residue were included in diets two (T2), three (T3) and four (T4), respectively. Diet one (T1) had zero inclusion level and served as control. Sixty Japanese quail chicks were randomly allocated to the four dietary treatments with three replications of five birds each in a
complete randomize design with pen location serving as the blocking factor. The result of feed intake, daily weight gain and feed conversion ratio showed no significant (P>0.05) difference at both phases of growth. Daily feed intake, daily weight gain and
feed conversion ratio ranged from 7.72 to 8.33 g, 2.50 to 2.55 g and 3.05 to 3.31 for treatments one (T1), two (T2), three (T3) and four (T4), respectively. Mortality rate of 3.33% was recorded during the experimental periods. This study revealed that, maize
offal; rice offal and local sorghum beer residue can be included in the diet of Japanese quail at 10% without any adverse effect and is therefore recommended for inclusion in the diets of Japanese quail


Gmelina arborea fruits and leaves have been neglected in the feeding of livestock in Mubi area of Adamawa State, Nigeria and this therefore necessitated the need to conduct studies on their chemical composition, level of awareness and adoption
of their utilization as livestock feed. A laboratory analysis and field survey was conducted to evaluate the chemical properties of Gmelina arborea fruit and leaves, assess the level of awareness and adoption of the fruits and leaves as livestock feed
resources in Mubi Area. The proximate composition, amino acid profile and levels of anti-nutritional factors of Gmelina arborea leaves and fruits were determined in triplicates using standard laboratory procedures. Structured questionnaires were used
to collect data from livestock farmers in Mubi area of Adamawa State. Eighty (80) livestock farmers irrespective of type of livestock kept were randomly selected and interviewed using structured questionnaires and the data collected were analysed and
summarized in Tables using simple descriptive statistics (frequency distribution and percentages). The result of the laboratory analysis revealed that Gmelina arborea fruit
and leaves have good nutritional value with protein content of 21.50% and 13.20%, respectively. However, the fruit and leaves were observed to contain some toxic components whose concentration in the fruit include tannins (3.20g/100g), oxalates (6.70g/100g), flavonoids (5.30 g/100g), phytates (5.80 g/100g) and saponins (4.60 g/100 g), respectively while the leaves showed concentrations of 1.20, 1.80, 3.10, 0.85 and 0.72 g/100 g of tannins, oxalates, flavonoids, phytates and saponins, respectively. The outcome of the level of awareness and adoption of Gmelina fruits and leaves as livestock feed resources indicated that greater proportion (73.25 %) of the respondents interviewed are not aware while only few (15 %) of them are aware. Majority of the respondents (72.50 %) showed willingness to feed their animals with gmelina fruits and leaves, 13.75 % fruits only and 6.25% leaves only and 7.50 % showed no interest. It can
be concluded that Gmelina fruits and leaves may have the potentials as livestock feed resources when they are properly processed before feeding to livestock. Therefore, more
studies are required to determine the best processing method(s) that will detoxify the fruits and leaves. Furthermore, the fruit and leaves should be used in a feeding trials in Mubi area, with a view to evaluating their feeding values

The current study was aimed to provide the nutritional information of the penaeid shrimp Penaeus monodon. The samples were collected from the fishing harbour at Visakhapatnam, east coast of India. Twenty different samples were selected randomly for the biochemical analysis. The nutritional parameters like proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, moisture and ash were estimated both in shell and flesh of the
shrimp. The protein content in the flesh (51.34±0.51) was higher than that of shell (37.49±0.32). Similarly the carbohydrate content of the flesh was higher (3.38±0.05) than the shell (2.49±0.02). The lipid content was lower in flesh (4.72±0.11) than that of shell
(6.95±0.21). Highest level of moisture content was noticed in the flesh (15.59±0.42) than that of shell (13.70±0.18). The ash content was minimum in flesh (12.38±0.72) in contrast to the shell of the shrimp (22.41±0.29). Based on the above results we recommended that shrimp contains good amount of nutritional substances which are required for the good choice of food supplement in human nutrition
