Abstract

The book entitled Al – Zahra, authored by Abu Bakr Al Asbahani is a great poetical work comprising a good number of Arabic poems of various topics, particularly platonic love which is covered in chapter one. During our teaching of this book university course “the Arabic library” for the Arabic language and literature specialists, we checked several mistakes resulting from the misplacement of the diacritical marks, phonetic corruption of words, vowelizing some structure, in addition to prosodic mistakes in some verses. All this occurred despite the precise checking done by the two well – versed scholars Dr. Ibrahim Samerra’i and Dr. Noori Al Qaysi in the second edition of that book. Our study in this research is restricted to the poetic material. However, we will overlook some simple printing mistakes which reader clearly distinguishes. This study aims at freeing this heritage book from grave and trivial confusing mistakes, a thing which we personally witnessed during our teaching.
