Weather of Arabia - When talking about the word “spring” and its meanings in the Arabic language, we can attest to the long history of this word and the development of its use. In ancient times of the Arabs, the word “spring” was used to refer to the fall season, not to the spring season that we know today, and this The concept was expressing the autumn season, which comes after the summer season and before the winter season. In this article, we will explore this beautiful concept and get to know it more closely.
In the ancient Arabic language, the word “rabi” referred to the season of collecting crops and fruits in the fall , and this season was very important for the ancient Arabs, as they relied on their crops and the fruits of their trees to survive during the cold and dry seasons.
Therefore, the word “spring” was used to mean autumn and the harvest season, and this meaning was prevalent in ancient poetry and Arabic literature, but with the passage of time and the development of the language, the meaning of the word changed until it became associated with the spring season that comes after the winter season.
This development in the Arabic language is a natural thing, as meanings and linguistic uses change with the development of time and culture, and although the word “rabi” today is associated with the spring season, flowers, and new life, its past reflects the richness and linguistic diversity of the Arabic language and the influence of time on its meanings.
Autumn in our country comes like a wave from the traveler’s hand. It is like a sudden joy that soon passes, but its presence in history remains present and affects the soul, as Abu Ishaq Al-Sabi described it as
The healthiest season of the year, and the easiest time, and with it the earth has revealed its fruit, declared its adornment, and the sky has unleashed the waves of its storms, and has announced the pouring of its waters.
Leaves fall slowly in autumn, which indicates the easing of burdens on trees. This phenomenon invites us to get rid of the burdens that have exhausted us for a long time, as if autumn teaches us the importance of daily change, and urges us to rearrange our priorities and strive to begin again, as Ahmed Khaled Tawfiq said.
Slowly, but surely, in the same way that autumn transforms the shape of a forest, a thousand little changes transformed me into someone else.
Although the meanings of words and understandings have changed over time, the concept of “spring and autumn” is still present in Arab culture today. This concept shows us the special beauty of the fall season and its positive impact on literature and culture. Regardless of how words are interpreted and changed over time, autumn remains a distinctive part of Arab life, culture, and weather.
