The aim of this study is to pin point the views of the late Arab grammarians on the use of Prophet's Sayings citations. Classical Arab grammarians disagreed on this issue as a faction of them accepted them but others only partially allowed them. This study chooses Ibn Ankaa (D. 1053 AH) as a typical representative of the late Arab grammarians who tackled this issue. Ibn ِAnkaa's book (Qurar Al Durar Al Waseetiah) shows that he used these citations extensively which is an indication of his extensive attention to them.

This paper studies the prosodic phenomenon of metrical redundancy which the early Arab prosodists allowed in the classic Arabic poetry but denied for the later poets.
The study refuses, from a stylistic vantage point, the aesthetic foundations of the notion of metrical redundancy as in verse puncture or spread, excess, and transgression on the metrical level. The study presupposes that verse puncture is the result of a change in the music of the line of verse which generates another correct metre unhitherto noticed or felt by the poet.
The study also presupposes that Al Khalil used the notion of verse puncture as metrical redundancy, starting with the overlap of metres resulting from puncture to invent the concept of circles which is based on the change from one metre into another through the addition of an extra syllable.
This study uses this approach to advance the first theory explaining how Al Farahidi invented the metres of Arabic verse according to the system of metrical circles.

The paper studies the issue of alternation in relation to rhetorical interpretation in Hawash Al Baidawi- d. This issue has become quite controversial in spite of the fact that it is a prominent aspect of Quranic expression. The paper shows the predominance of camouflaged alternation among the followers of this book. Quranic citations show that alternation is also relevant to other rhetorical devices like pun, metaphor, repetition, and simile. This reflects the aspects of rhetorical excellence via rhetorical interpretation.
