Part 2 Question 4

Write briefly on the biography of Iliya Abu- Madi with little reference to his composition “at-Talasim”.


Most of the candidates who chose this question only dwelled on the biography of this literary icon of the modern period without making reference to his composition “at-Talasim”. In summary, their performance was only fair.

This question, unlike question 5, was mainly biographical in nature and it centred on the personality of Ali b. Abi¯-Ta¯lib. Candidates who answered this question performed creditably well by mentioning his date and place of birth, his relationship with the Prophet (S.A.W), his participation in most of the battles fought in Islam and his nomination as the fourth rightly guided Khali¯f (successor of the prophet).
