My Second Paper

In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful


I thank AL-mighty Allah (The God of Universe), my parents, Deanship of College of Arts/ AL-Iraqia University, my professors and all those who are around me for helping me complete and publish my second paper in Midad AL-Adab Referred Journal that received the Arab Impact Factor (1,02 )and for being assigned as a member of the editorial board of the above mentioned journal. The following is the Abstract of my paper titled "The Study of the Assessment of the Qur'anic Word Ghurfa into English". 



The paper aims to see how far Qur'anic translators whose translations are selected for assessment are capable of rendering the meaning and sense of the Qur'anic word "Ghurfa" adequately; especially the word concerned refers to two different things,

The first means hollow of hand whereas, the second one refers to places in paradise. 

And the researcher based his paper on the following hypotheses:

1-Most Qur'anic translators are likely to render the Qur'anic word "Ghurfa" appropriately.

2-Inadequate renditions can be produced due to the confusion of selecting which meaning of the word is intended 

To validate the hypotheses mentioned above, the researcher selected five Qur'anic Ayas embracing the word "Ghurfa" and he consulted four existing Qur'anic translations. And the researcher has designed an eclectic model for assessment. Moreover, the results of the paper have validated the aforementioned hypotheses because most Qur'anic translators rendered the Qur'anic word "Ghurfa" into English appropriately. And they did not mix between the meanings of Qur'anic word "Ghurfa".

Building University Student Starts in Classroom

Building University Student Starts in Classroom


Assistant Instructor Ibrahim Talaat Ibrahim (M.A)

Deputy Head of Translation Department/ College of Arts/ AL-Iraqia University


University campus is defined as the centre of science and knowledge and it is place that contributes to building nations and peoples. Besides, university student is described as the cornerstone of the academic process. This is why; university professor cares about the student a lot so as to live up to his scientific level. And the classroom is an area that witnesses the formulation of university student through the process of teaching and learning. In other words, the process mentioned above does not contribute to building the student scientifically only but also helps refine his thoughts and behaviour to be great. On the top of that a lot of talks happen between the professor and his student in classroom and every single subject has a great importance to the formation of his mentality. Moreover, there are several factors working on building student's personality in classroom, they are presented below:      

-Respect: it is considered to be the foundation of student-student and student-professor relations. So, students must show respect for their own professor and this behaviour motivates him to deal with them kindly. 

-Doing homework completely: the student might feel lazy once he hears about homework. However, this is an important subject because it will help boost his academic skills. Besides, a student might think about the following "the reason of joining university or college is to get a certificate no more no less" and following graduation, there will many negative impacts once he tries to get a job but unfortunately, he does not find an appropriate opportunity because his academic grades are low and this happened as a result of not paying attention to the homework given to him by his professor in classroom or he did not care about his curricula in general. Therefore, the student must be interested in the academic curriculum to achieve his goal.    

- Co-operating with colleagues: co-operation is an essential characteristic of building university student process due to its good academic, social and practical dimensions. So, it is advised that all students should co-operate with each other in different academic, social and scientific fields because it works on strengthening friendship and brotherhood bond among student. 

Faithfulness in work: freshmen might not understand the concept of faithfulness in work. Therefore, they may witness dangerous situations. So, faithfulness is mastering the work by staying away from falseness. In other word, when any professor assigns a student to do certain task, he has to master it without any negligence.  When the student succeeds in his academic years and he understood all the aforementioned points, he will be the best and he can contribute building his society properly. 


So, the classroom remains the foundation of building students scientifically and helps build his personality to be an active figure in his society. And subsequently, he will be the pillar of structuring his state's higher values
