CLASSIFICATION AND TRANSCRIBING BOOKS IN MAKKAH AL-MOKARAMAH THROUGHOUT RELIGIOUS SEASONS IN THE NINTH AND TENTH HIJRI CENTURIES, CORRESPONDING TO THE FIFTEENTH AND SIXTEENTH GREGORIAN
Books classification in Makkah Al-Mokaramah was not confined to Meccan Scholars, but also a range of expats scholars from different countries and disciplines participated in such classification process, whereas they received considerable deal of calm and stability, and they were surrounded by thriving scientific atmosphere and an abundant economic prosperity. which enticed many expats scholars to tend towards classification of different books and thesis that enriched Mecca's cultural heritage and the Meccan Library, rather than their compositions they brought from their countries from which they moved, which contributed to accelerating Mecca's intellectual cultural movement. This research aims to introduce these authors, to clarify books and thesis titles they classified in Makkah, others they brought with them and others they transcribed in Makkah, and to demonstrate the significant roles of scribers in Makkah in terms of taking particular care of such books, copies of which moved from Makkah and spread throughout Islamic world
