Perhaps I am reaffirming a fact which most of us who have devoted their efforts to research in Islamic Studies have noticed collectively. It is really the service, which the Dairatul Ma’arif-il-Osmania University has rendered us by its true dedication to research and by the publication of such important works of reference in Arabic upon which our researches depend mostly.

The real value and true significance of this literary service could not be realized except by those who are experts in the art of editing manuscripts and deciphering texts.

It frequently happens, that we, who are born to Arabic, are astounded in dealing with ancient texts, what of those who are not of Arabic stock nor their mother-tongue is Arabic, and they are engaged in investigating such texts.
