The primary data of this poem is Al-Diwan. This research aims to reveal the broader meaning of the poem through the meaninglessness in the poem's exposition, the results of heuristic reading and hermeneutic reading, determining the matrix, model, variant and hypnogram in the poem entitled "Qais wa Laila" by Nazik al-Malaika with the sub-chapter analysis of riffaterre's semiotic theory that has been mentioned. This research method is a qualitative descriptive literature review. Among the results of this study are: (1) there are many discontinuities in the meaning of a poetic expression in this poem, so many perspectives appear, including similes in the word <em>fi yadil mauti</em> (2) the results of heuristic reading of this poem are advice from the author by telling the pain, madness and futility committed by Qais, (3) the result of the heuristic reading of this poem is that the romance told by other writers about the story of Qais and Laila is considered a useless thing according to the author, depicted through the signs of the choice of diction in his work (4) the matrix of this poem is not to waste time and be stupid, written in the last stanza (5) the variant of this poem is the reinforcement of the author's advice written in stanza 23 (6) the model of this poem is the author's view of love - Qais - which is only the ultimate torment.</p> Dewi Maisyah Mushfiroh Copyright (c) 2023 Dewi Maisyah Mushfiroh 2023-11-29 2023-11-29 3 2 151 167 10.15642/jalsat.2023.3.2.151-167 The Issue of Synonymy between the Words Al-Hulm and Al-Ru’ya in Surah Yusuf: A Quranic Semantics Study <p style="margin: 0cm; text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-CA" style="font-family: 'Cambria',serif; color: #0e101a;">The issue of synonymy in the Holy Qur'an is one of the important controversial issues between scholars and those working with the Qur'an and its sciences, ancient and modern. Some scholars prove the occurrence of synonymy in the Qur'an by the difference in the two words and the meaning being the same, and some of them deny its occurrence by the complete lack of synonymy between the two words. It is one of the synonymous words in the Qur'an, including Al-Hulm and Al-Ru'ya. This study aims to clarify and answer detailed implications in the meaning of the words Al-Hulm and Al-Ru'ya in Surah Yusuf. The type of this study is a desk study to obtain facts about the semantic meaning between these two words using the descriptive and analytical approach to solve study problems. The results of this research are that the semantic study reveals great secrets and wondrous wisdom that can only be imagined by those who contemplate this great miracle of the Qur'an. The words al-Hilm and al-Ru'ya have synonymy and context comparison. Regarding synonymy, these two words have the same meaning: dream. Meanwhile, in a comparative context, the verses in al-Ru'ya show dreams and are revelations sent down by Allah SWT to His Prophet and can be interpreted. As for al-Hilm in context, it has no meaning and does not require interpretation, and it is associated with Satan, and it is not permissible for Muslims to talk about it because it is part of Satan's play.</span></p> Fahmi Akhyar Al Farabi Sabilul Wafda Copyright (c) 2023 Fahmi Akhyar Al Farabi, Mirwan Akhmad Taufiq, Sabilul Wafda 2023-11-29 2023-11-29 3 2 168 184 10.15642/jalsat.2023.3.2.168-184 Analysis of Phonological Errors in Reading Qasidah Burdah at Darul Falah Islamic Boarding SchoolTambak Sumur Sidoarjo Indonesia <p><em>This study aims to describe the phonological errors of students of the Salafiyah Islamic boarding school, Darul Falah 42, Tambak Sumur, Sidoarjo. In addition to explaining the error, it also seeks the underlying causes or factors for the errors in the pesantren students to provide solutions to help improve the following learning process. In collecting data, researchers used listening, note-taking and recording techniques. In addition, researchers also use observation techniques, interviews, and also documentation. The research method uses a qualitative descriptive method. The phonological errors of the students were found in two groups of sounds, namely the group of throat sounds (</em><em>الحلق</em><em>) and the group of sounds of the tongue (</em><em>اللسان</em><em>). In this study, two causes or factors of error were found, namely linguistic factors and non-linguistic factors—the different alphabetical characters between Arabic and Indonesian caused the error. The non-linguistic factors include lack of self-confidence, reading comprehension, and mother tongue interference. Then, the researchers provide several solutions to help improve the subsequent learning process, namely that students should increase their enthusiasm for learning and improve their reading, teachers should pay special attention to students who are not fluent in reading Arabic literature, and teachers should provide recitation reviews for every student's mistakes.</em></p> <p> </p> Nur Rohmatika Copyright (c) 2023 Nur Rohmatika 2023-11-29 2023-11-29 3 2 185 206 10.15642/jalsat.2023.3.2.185-206 Optimality Theory Paradigm in the Formation of Active Participles Arabic Quadrilateral Verbs <p>This article aims to investigate the implementation of the Optimality Theory (OT) paradigm in the formation of Active Participle (AP) in quadrilateral verbs in the Arabic language. This approach involves morphological and contrastive linguistic analyses to understand the patterns of PA formation from quadrilateral verbs, with a focus on the hierarchy of criteria and candidate evaluation based on OT principles. The research methodology includes an in-depth study of various forms of PA produced by quadrilateral verbs, identifying rules and preferences that lead to changes in the word forms. The research findings indicate that OT provides profound insights into the complexity of the morphology of quadrilateral verbs, illustrating consistent patterns of change as well as variations depending on grammatical and semantic contexts. The implications of these research findings significantly contribute to the understanding of Arabic linguistic structure, morphological theory, and contrastive analysis methods. By paving the way for further research, this article suggests that paradigm serves as an effective conceptual framework to explain morphological phenomena in the Arabic language, enriching Arabic linguistic literature and supporting the development of advanced morphological analysis methods. This study opens avenues for deeper exploration of linguistic intricacies, fostering academic insights into the Arabic language's structural nuances.</p> Zakiyah Copyright (c) 2023 Zakiyah 2023-11-29 2023-11-29 3 2 207 223 10.15642/jalsat.2023.3.2.207-223 The role of Nigerian scholars in improving the Arabic language in the future in Nigeria <p><em>This research seeks to investigate the efforts of Nigerian Arabic scholars in developing and attracting people to learn Arabic. The aim is for local people to understand religion properly and correctly through Arabic. This research uses a qualitative descriptive research method. The data source was obtained from field observations, strengthened by data from books, journals, and literature related to the research object.
