Arabic Proverbs Of "Af' al Attafdeel" (in Arabic)

Auther : Afif Abdul-Rahman

This article discusses an important issue that is very common in our proverbs. It is so important that our ancient scholars devoted whole books for discussing it. This is the issue of al’al attafdeel proverbs.

This article is divided into three parts: the first tries to find out about such proverbs. To justify their occurrence, and to relate them to the mentality of the Arabs. The second part tries to find out about the relationship between these proverbs and the category of animals as a model. And the third part tries to establish a connection between those models and the ethics of the society in relation to its language.

The article tries to list the merits which were mentioned in the field of comparison, and concludes by stating that the negative merits were more frequent than the positive ones; this indicates that such proverbs were trying to criticize the society.

The research depends mainly in its findings upon precise statistics, based upon my dictionary on the subject. Such statistics are, then, followed by conclusions and notes.
