Sirril Mektum Fi Ilmin Nucum Fahreddin Razi 776 Sayfal

Sirril Mektum Fi Ilmin Nucum (The Secret of the Hidden in the Science of the Stars) is a book written by the famous Muslim scholar and philosopher Fahreddin Razi (1149-1209) in the 12th century. The book is a comprehensive treatise on astrology, astronomy, and cosmology, based on the Quran, the Hadith, and the Greek and Persian sources. The book consists of 776 pages and is divided into four parts: the introduction, the principles, the applications, and the appendices.


The introduction covers the definition, the history, the purpose, and the benefits of astrology. Razi argues that astrology is a noble and useful science that can reveal the secrets of God's creation and providence. He also defends astrology against the criticisms of some theologians and philosophers who considered it as a form of sorcery or idolatry. Razi claims that astrology is based on rational principles and empirical observations, and that it does not contradict the Quran or the Hadith.

The principles cover the basic concepts and terminology of astrology, such as the planets, the signs, the houses, the aspects, the lots, and the fixed stars. Razi explains the nature, the characteristics, the effects, and the interactions of these elements in detail. He also discusses the methods of calculating and interpreting horoscopes, such as the natal chart, the annual revolution, the solar return, and the lunar return.

The applications cover the practical uses and examples of astrology in various fields and situations, such as medicine, psychology, ethics, politics, law, warfare, agriculture, commerce, marriage, children, travel, dreams, and prophecy. Razi provides numerous case studies and anecdotes to illustrate how astrology can help people to understand themselves and their destiny better. He also gives advice and guidance on how to deal with various problems and challenges that may arise from astrological influences.

The appendices cover some supplementary topics and issues related to astrology, such as the calendar, the time zones, the eclipses, the comets, the meteors, the earthquakes, and the geomancy. Razi also addresses some questions and objections that may be raised by skeptics and opponents of astrology. He refutes their arguments with logic and evidence, and reaffirms his confidence in astrology as a valid and reliable science.

Sirril Mektum Fi Ilmin Nucum is one of the most important and influential works on astrology in Islamic history. It reflects Razi's vast knowledge and originality in integrating various sources and disciplines into a coherent and comprehensive system. The book was widely read and cited by later Muslim astrologers and scholars, such as Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406), Al-Biruni (973-1048), Al-Suyuti (1445-1505), and Al-Ghazali (1058-1111). The book was also translated into several languages, such as Persian, Turkish, Urdu, and English.
