To facilitate the process of teaching and committing lessons to memory, Muslim scholars have benefitted from the considerable effect of rhythm and music of speech and have therefore versified the rules and principles of certain sciences. These versified rules are referred to as “didactic poems“ most of which are on Arabic grammar. They have been quite prevalent amongst Iranians.
This article sets to introduce some of the Iranians’ rhymed books of grammar. Then it explores some classical books such as Jorjani’s Avamel, Zamakhshari’s Mofassal and Ibn al-Hajeb’s Kafiya. The authors of this kind of books have sometimes written their own independent books, for example, on the grammatical rules of Arabic, and sometimes have turned into verse books written by others in prose.
