Summary

Kalila wa Dimnah is a collection of fables of Indian origin translated into Arabic in the eighth century by Abdullah Ibn Al Muqaffa. The work was translated into many languages and is said to have inspired Jean de La Fontaine and other compilers of fables. Kalila wa Dimnah belongs to the "mirror of princes" literature genre, and its stories put moral and political advice into the mouths of animals to explain questions of social life and princely wisdom.

دبلوم في السياسة لمن استمع لكتاب كليلية و دمنة

بسم الله،
يحوي الكتاب على عدد من القصص على اللسنة الناس و اللسنة البهائم من الدواب والطير. حول قيم الوفاء والصدق والاخلاص والنصيحة. وما يخالف الحسن من القول والفعل. وعلى المستمع التحصف لقرائة الأخت الفاضلة نور. فانها على وتيرة واحدة تقريبا في القراءة. وثمة أماكن يستحق عندها الابطاء هنيهة. وسمي الكتاب على قصة اول بهيمتين يستهل بها الكتاب الا و هما كليلة و دمنة. والسلام
