Searchable Online Version Al-Fayyūmī, Al-Miṣbāḥ al-Munīr fī Gharīb al-Sharḥ al-Kabīr المصباح المنير للفيّومي

Al-Fayyūmī (d. 1368 CE / 770 AH) was a 14th century Egyptian lexicographer who served as a mosque imam in Syria. His Miṣbāḥ is concerned with explaining technical terms used in al-Sharḥ al-Kabīr of the Shāfiʿī scholar Abū al-Qāsim al-Rāfiʿī al-Qazwīnī, which itself is a sharh (exposition) of al-Ghazzālī's al-Wajīz, a book concerned with Shāfiʿī jurisprudence. Al-Fayyūmī's Miṣbāḥ goes beyond being only a technical dictionary due to its wide scope, making it a general dictionary of the Arabic language with a focus on explaining technical words used in the science of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence).
