FUNGSI, GUNA DAN PENYALAHGUNAAN ILMU NAHWU - SHARAF
Abstract: Nahwu, so far, has been understood as a tool to read kitab kuning (a yellow manuscript in Arabic without harakat about basic Islamic rules, commonly used in Indonesian Islamic Boarding School). Like other language rules, nahwu is a knowledge which used to explain the sentences uttered by the Arabic speaker so the listener understands the meaning.
That is why, nahwu is viewed as a tool to read the yellow manuscript. The use of nahwu turns into misuse because nahwu only has the function when people read yellow manuscript especially Basmalah without Harakat read in various readings and it does not match with the aim of Basmalah.
