Word Production (Called in Arabic by Al-Tawlīd Al-Luġawy) which means inventing new words is one of development of language phenomenon that happens in any languages including Arabic. This phenomenon is a demand of condition that one language is not capable of expressing ideas and emotions and has something to do with communication with non-speaker or other languages. Thus, a language can influence and be influenced. This paper tried to uncover reasons and theories using comparative study so that it is clear for Arabic language researchers to use tawlid in their research. The writer found eight reasons why neology emerged, which are development of civilization, friction between Arab and Non-Arab, administration system after Islamic expansion, translation process from Greek into Arabic, social and political demands, the beauty of expression, and inventing new scientific terms, while Ibrahim Murad stated five theories about neology: phonetic neology, morphological neology, semantic neology, spontaneous neology, and borrowing neology; as Nasruddin suggested five theories such as transfer of meaning, derivation, derivation from Arabization (mu’rab) or loanwords (dakhil), taulid form coinase and structure, metaphor neology, and meaning expansion.التوليد بمعنى إحداث كلمة جديدة مظهر من مظاهر تطوراللغات منها اللغة العربية.تكون هذه المظاهر من متطلبات الأحوال من عدم كفائة اللغة فى تعبير أفكار صاحب اللغة و مشاعرهم خاصة و نتيجة من تعاملهم مع الآخرين فأثروا وتأثّروا. اهتمّ كثير من علماء اللغة بهذه المظاهر و بحثوا فى أسبابها و دواعىها بل جعلوا قواعدها. فهذه المقالة تعرض جهدهم فى هذا المجال فى اكتشاف تلك أسباب والقواعد بمنهج مقارنة حتى تكون واضحة لمحببي اللغة العربية راجيا استعمالهمم فى بحوثهم و مقالتهم.وجد الكاتب ثمانىة أسباب لظهور التوليد فى اللغة العربية وهي التطور الـحضاري، والاحتكاك بين العرب الأعجم، والـحاجة الـملحة، والنظام الإداري عند العرب بعد الفتوحات الإسلامية، وعملية ترجمة العلوم اليونانية إلى اللغة العربية، والدعاية السياسية والاقتصادية، وجمال التعبير، ووضع الـمصطلحات العلميةكما وجد ابراهيم مراد الذي قدم خمس...

Sri Lanka is a non-Arab country which gives utmost priority for teachingSinhalese, Tamil and English languages, a question arises on how the teaching activities can be performed according to the academic curricula and regulations, how Arabic language teaching books are composed, and how the religious schools can be supervisedby non-governmental social entities, abiding by the principles of teaching while facing several challenges. This study strives to find the solutions for such issues. To conduct this research, the researcher has followed the descriptive and analytical approach, for which he has taken three long-standing religious colleges namely (Al-Bari Arabic College, Al-Ghafooriya Arabic College and JamiathulFalah Arabic College) that have contributed to boom up the Arabic language in Sri Lanka and have been rendering this service for more than seventy five years. Also the researcher found that teaching methodologies of Arabic language have not been developed enough in Sri Lanka according to the modern era, although it is being taught in various fields and level at national universities, government and religious schools. These institutions follow the traditional curricula in teaching Arabic language. The process of teaching Arabic in Sri Lanka needs to unify the textbooks into a general academic curriculum, which will be suitable for the contemporary world inclusive of all fields of study that are implemented in the religious schools, in addition to appointing Arabic language teachers from Arab countries, planning and implementing projects in order to face the challenges that the Arabic language is going through in Sri Lanka, while encouraging them to teach the functional Arabic language rather than applying traditional memorizing teaching Methods and organizing teacher training.

It is noticeable that most non-Arabic students may face great difficulty when translating Arabic proverbs into Malay or vice versa due to their lack of familiarity with the Arab culture of wisdom and proverbs, as they have translated Arabic proverbs into Malay inspired by the cultural elements of the Malay language. From this standpoint, this research aims to study translation strategies and their foundations between Arabic and Malay proverbs. It also aims to identify the best strategies, and the most appropriate for translating Arabic proverbs for students of non-Arabic speakers, especially Malay Students. The research follows the descriptive and analytical approach because it is the most appropriate for the topic. The research reached many results, the most important of which are: It is unsuitable to apply the literal translation method in translating proverbs, as it may lead to the loss of the proverb meaning. The “equivalence method” is one of the best strategies in translating proverbs to convey the message and to understand its meanings for non-Arabic speaking students, avoiding corruption in the meaning to be conveyed, and preserving the method. This method would increase the desire of non-Arabic speaking students and encourage them to study Arab cultures through proverbs, in addition to keeping them away from the boredom resulting from the production of ambiguous translation that raises questions about the significance of the correct message.

Language is every sound the people use to express their ideas and communicate with others. It is the basis of any language. Every language has its own unique systems in phonemic and orthographical symbols. According to this concept, Arabic is a Semitic language whereas Tamil is Indo –European language, there is no doubt that it is difficult to foreign language learners to identify the place of articulation of the unfamiliar sounds, its pronunciations and writing format. Among them are the Tamil – speaking Muslims who use and learn Arabic as a foreign language. They face difficulties in pronouncing and writing Arabic letters, proper nouns and term words due to the lack of clarity in the sounds between these two languages. This study try to identify similarities and differences between the sound of Arabic and Tamil languages. This research focus on descriptive and contrastive methods to analyze the data gathered from secondary data such as books and previous studies related to the topic. The result indicates that the Arabic letters are differ from Tamil letters in terms of their number, writing method and their shapes. And also, it has six vowels similar to the six vowels of Tamil language in pronunciation. But they differ in places of articulation and its aspects. Thus, Consonants of Arabic differ from Tamil consonants in pronunciation places of articulation and IPA for them. Consequently, this study will support to determine the pronunciation of Arabic letters and read Arabic language in the best way.إن اللغة هي أصوات يعبر بها كل قوم عن آرائهم وأفكارهم، وهي أداة تساعد على الاتصال بالآخرين. وكل لغة تتركب من جوانب أربعة : الأصوات، الصرف، النحو ، المعنى. وأما الأصوات فهي أساس اللغة، ولكل لغة نظام صوتي خاص ورموز اصطلاحية. من خلال هذا النظر إلى إن اللغة العربية من العائلة اللغوية السامية والتاملية من مجموعة اللغات الهندو - أوروبية، ومما لاشك فيه يصعب على متعلمي اللغة الأجنبية تحديد مخارج الأصوات الجديدة ونطقها وكتابتها. ومنهم المسلمون الناطقون باللغة التاملية الذين يستخدمون ويتعلمون اللغة العربية كلغة أجنبية، فهم يواجهون المشقة في نطق وكتابة الحروف والأعلام والمصطلحات العربية لعدم الوضوح في أصوات اللغتين العربية والتاملية. فتركزت هذه الدراسة تحديد أصوات اللغتين العربية والتاملية، والكشف عن مواقع الشبه والخلاف الصوتي بين اللغتين. استخدمت...

This research aims to demonstrate the importance of creed in human life. The creed is one of the pillars upon which the legislation of divine and non-divine religions relies. Most people act according to their beliefs and religious affiliations. The righteousness of people reflects through their beliefs and integrity of thinking. In this research, based on the analytical descriptive method, we have explored some of the creedal issues of Bangladeshi Muslims mentioned in the famous Bengali-Islamic novel "Bishad Shindhu (Ocean of Sadness)" written by Mir Musharraf Husain. Reasoning from the Qur'an and Sunnah have been applied to these issues to reach a conclusion of the study. It is observed that the biggest disagreement among people has occurred due to creedal differences as certain matters can be injected into people’s creed which they believe in. Therefore, Allah the Almighty sent all the prophets and messengers who called to the true belief, the primary goal of creating mankind and the jinn. This can only be achieved by confirming the worship of Allah alone. The acceptance of worship and deeds depends on an individual’s intention. While a pure creed validates every deed, the corrupted creed invalidates all activities to be void. That is why, our Prophet Muhammad worked thirteen years in Macca to call to worship Allah alone and to establish the true belief amongst mankind. This research has established that the creed of the novelist, Mir Musharraf Husain, is a Shiite faith, which is not compatible with the true religion of Islam.
