The Animal in Ancient Arabic Proverbs (in Arabic)

Auther : Afif Abdul-Rahman

The relationship between the researcher and Arabic proverbs goes back to 1075, when I published AlWasit Fil Amthal written by AlWahidi (fifth century).

Eight years later I edited and compiled a dictionary of ancient proverbs (published bu Dar Al-Ulum, Riyadh, 1985 two volumes”). In the preface of the dictionary I promised the readers that I’ll offer them many papers, each studying an important topic in proverbs.

My way to realize these aims is to look for each proverb and its resources, and to read the stories of the proverbs. This research depends on facts and statistics, followed bu analyses to reach solid facts and results.

What is amazing those wild animals occupied the first rank: many proverbs belong to special wild animals like the Wolf. From among the domestic animals the Camel comes first.

The paper attempts to deal lightly with the grammatical style; it also attempts to make lists of all animals which were mentioned in proverbs, and the manners and habits of each one, as well as the number of proverbs.

The weak or small animals have one proverb each or none at all; the dull or stupid animals were neglected.
