BOOK: An-Nahdah (Revival)

Download the book from here.

An-Nahdah (Revival) – Linguistic and terminological meanings:

The word ‘An-Nahdah’ is an Arabic word derived from the verb Nahada (نَهَضََ ) which means Qaama (to stand) however it has begun to be used with an Istilaahi (terminological definition) meaning which indicates a specific reality. This meaning that has been provided in the modern time was not used by the Arabs previously. This is because its linguistic meaning according to what the Arabs laid down differs from this terminological meaning. Therefore the word should not return to its linguistic meaning without a Qareenah (indication/linkage) as its new terminological meaning has become widespread, dominant and it represents the meaning that comes straight to the mind when it is mentioned or heard by social scientists, the majority of educated people and even the general masses.
