AHMED, SALAHUDDIN
A Dictionary of Muslim Names
London, Hurst. 1999. (ISBN: 1850653577). Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy. xvi + 351 pages. The resurgence and revitalisation of Muslim culture have created a growing interest in the study of Muslim names. Throughout the world Muslims share similar names, be they in the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, South East Asia or new migrants in the West. The predominant language in Muslim names is Arabic, followed by Persian (Farsi), the two major languages which transmitted Muslim culture in its early stages and later expansion. The purpose of this dictionary is to give the meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage of the words, Arabic or Persian, which form parts of Muslim names. Many Muslims with names that comprise Arabic or Persian are unaware of their meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage, particularly if they are unfamiliar with these languages. It is important for parents and guardians to devote time to selecting suitable names for children by consulting authentic books on names and re-checking them with from standard Arabic-English and/or Persian-English dictionaries. This dictionary simplifies this process. 304. Fine/No Jacket.

Its second major purpose is to enable the student to achieve fluency in reading and writing the language in its everyday style. Essentially, the book reflects the language simplification movement now under way in Japan. It presents first the 881 essential characters prescribed by the Ministry of Education as the minimum requirement for the six years of Japanese elementary school. Each character is accompanied by a chart demonstrating the proper way to write it. The second major section presents the 1,850 characters (including the 881 essential characters) adopted by law for general use in publications. These characters are given with their readings and definitions. A chart for the writing of the two Kana syllabaries is also included. A full index of characters reading both on and kun, appears at the endof the book. Formerly the ability to read Japanese newspapers and magazines required the knowledge of no fewer than 4,000 characters. 311. Very Good/No Jacket.
