Posted on Mar 31, 2005  |   3699 views  

Abul-Aswad Ad-Du'aliy is the founder of "Nahw" or Arabic Grammar. He set up Arabic punctuation, including letter movements "Tahkeel" and added points to differentiate between similar old letters. He lived in Al-Kufa, now in Iraq, by the time of the Caliphate of 'Aliy Ibn Abi-Talib. This cartoon was published for me in fall 2004, by the "Caravan" newspaper at the American University in Cairo.
