GLIMPSES OF ISLAMIC SCHOLARSHIP IN THE 18TH CENTURY 1 VON STEFAN REICHMUTH Bochum There are very few Islamic scholars of the 18th century who made a more lasting impact on Arabic and Islamic learning than the In- dian ‡ar”f Mu¥ammad Murta⁄‚ az-Zab”d” (1145-1205/1732-91) 2 . His fame is mainly connected with the largest Arabic dictionary, © Koninklijke Brill BV, Leiden, 1999 Die Welt des Islams 39, 1 1 The article greatly profited from a draft paper which was prepared in 1989 by Mustafa A. Ali, Khartoum, and R. S. OFahey, Bergen. It also included a trans- lation of the text presented below which provided the basis for my own. The draft was generously made available to me by R. S. OFahey for further use. I neverthe- less take full responsibility for text and translation, and I also wish to express my gratitude to R. S. OFahey for providing me with a copy of the printed edition of al-Ahdal, an-Nafas al-yam‚n” (see below). I further thank Anke v. Kügelgen, Michael Kemper (Bochum), Bernd Radtke (Utrecht), Isaac O. Ogunbiyi (Lagos) and Dimitri Gutas (New Haven/Conn.) for their comments
