The French translation of the work is arranged by its juxtaposition against the corresponding Arabic words, meaning it creates a somewhat helpful and useful literal, linear arrangement of words against each word contained in the many famous fables, helping the reader recognize Arabic words, understand their meanings, enjoy the text of a fable, all at the same time, while gradually advancing in the study of the Arabic language. Luqman (also known as Luqman The Wise, Luqmaan, Lukman, and Luqman al-Hakeem Arabic: ) was a wise man for whom Surat Luqman (Arabic: ), the thirty-first sura (chapter) of the Qur'an, was named. Luqman (c. 1100 BC) is believed to be from Ethiopia in Africa. There are many stories about Luqman in Arabic and Turkish literature and the primary historical sources are the Tafsir ibn Kathir and Stories of the Qur'an by Ibn Kathir.
