Professor Ihsan Abbas

The Foundation's Award for Service to the Written Heritage of Islam for the year 2002 was presented to Professor Ihsan Abbas. Professor Abbas was cited for his penetrating critical insight into Islamic studies, his exemplary translations from and into Arabic, the high standards he had achieved in editing several seminal texts of Muslim culture, and, ultimately, his pioneering work in establishing the basis of the modern Arabic library.

The Award ceremony was held at the University of Jordan, courtesy of its Chancellor, Professor Abdullah al-Moussa. The Foundation was represented by Professor Ibrahim Chabbouh, Director of al-Majma' al-Malaki li-Buhuth al-Hadarah al-Islamiyah (the Al al-Bayt Foundation) and member of Al-Furqan Manuscript Centre's Board of Experts.
