This paper is dealing with one of the semantic Prepositions (مِن), its linguistic uses and its frequency in people’s transactions, approvals, oaths, marriages and divorces.

To linguists and grammarians, this preposition has about seventeen meanings. Each usage has a special meaning and implications relating to it.

Scholars of Usul and Fiqh realized how effective this preposition is; therefore they studied carefully its meanings and directed their attention to its meanings, and laid special emphasis on those meanings that have more effects on juristic issues. Such meanings are: “التبعيض , someness, التبيين , clarification, ابتداء الغاية , the start of destination, التعليل , reasoning, الزيادة , (structural non-functionality. Jurists and Usulists had different opinions according to the linguists’ different views, but they were more concerned with deciding which of these meanings of مِن is used in its real meaning.

The majority of linguists say that the real meaning of مِن is to indicate the start of destination. Some of them and of Usulists too, say that all these meanings are real. Others say that clarification, or someness is its real meaning. Every group provided different types of quotations to support their view.

These linguistic and juristic different viewpoints resulted in differences in the juristic rulings about many issues and incidents wherein مِن was used.

In conclusion, this paper has dealt with the “fiqh of preposition” whether in the statements of Sharia or those of persons.
