Nasir b. Abd al-Rahman al-Khurayyif Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Abdallah b. Hamad al-Khathran Faculty of Arabic, Dept. of Grammar and Grammar, Morphology & Philology Date of Thesis Defense: 21/1/1426 A.H. This dissertation is a study of Abu Zayd al-Ansari’s (d. A.H.215) reports collected from the Arabs concerning Quranic readings, Prophetic Hadith, sayings, proverbs, poetry and rajaz. The author studied these reports and their influence in eight chapters. The first chapter deals with the forms taken by the reports, the second with their sources, the third with the manner in which they are presented and the fourth with their influence on the principles of Arabic grammar. In the fifth chapter, the author studies the influence of these reports on declension, while the sixth studies their influence on grammar. The seventh chapter is concerned with the reports’ effect on the grammatical schools and the final chapter takes up the forms that influence took. The author derived his material from the remaining works of Abu Zayd himself, as well as the books of grammar and declension, up until the end of the fourth century A.H., which preserved some of his reports. The author was able to elucidate Abu Zayd’s influence on the principles of grammar, and his minimal influence on the grammarians of Kufa and Basra, with the exception of Abu Ali al-Farisi and Abul-Fath Ibn Jinni towards the close of the fourth Hijri century. In addition, the author pointed out and studied some contradictory and inconsistent reports, explained their contradictions as well as the reasons for preferring some over others. A number of research techniques were employed in the dissertation, including descriptive and historical methodologies. The author also made use of the SPSS package particularly in his study of reports on poetry and rajaz.
