Chapter Summary

This book discusses in detail in the Arabic introduction, the structure, length, and framing of his account clearly distinguish it among all existing biographies of al-Nābulusī. In terms of its literary style, al-Ghazzī uses rhyming prose, common in late premodern literature, in various parts of the text, especially in the openings of the chapters, but not extensively throughout. The rest of the text is written in the form of normal prose common in modern Arabic. This introduction chapter provides detailed analyses of al-Ghazzī's text and an extensive critical review of the existing modern literature on al-Nābulusī. It provides a lengthy and critical review of al-Nābulusī's scholarly works. Author's discussion of al-Ghazzī's view will be based on the introduction and conclusion of al-Wird al-Unsī, whereas that of al-Nābulusī's view will be based on his treatise "Kashf al-Nūr ʿan Aṣḥāb al-Qubūr".

Keywords:al-Ghazzī; al-Nābulusī; Arabic; literary; scholarly works
