Digitized Arabic Books for your Weekend Read

Reading the delightful and surprisingly easy al- Falsafah al-lughawīyah wa-al-alfāẓ al-ʻArabīyah (pdf) from the collection of over 15,000 Arabic books NYU is working on making available in digitized format online.

Another book worth spending the weekend reading is al- Muʻtazilah by Zuhdi Jār Allāh for those who are interested in a historical account of  the Mutazilites.

The dedication reads:

'To young Arabs calling for freedom, in every place and throughout time, I dedicate this dissertation on the history of the advocates of freedom of thought who came before them"

That alone makes it worth the read.
