Sources are comingEdit

Given that the subject is a pivotal figure in the history of the grammar of the Arabic language, I'm a bit surprised that the article is short and unsourced. Sources are on the way, as I can guarantee that this individual is not only notable but quite significant, as will be demonstrated in the near future. MezzoMezzo (talk) 11:56, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I have provided two sources for the time being which I think support the subject's notability. I also have three more on the history of Arabic language lying around somewhere and I have reason to believe that I can find information on the subject there. I cannot, in good conscience, remove the notability tag with only two sources here on the article, however I also trust that as a sign of good conscience that other editors will not think of nominating this article for deletion due to notability issues until the resources which I have mentioned have been exhausted. I am sure that, after giving this article the necessary attention, the subject's notability will be apparent and the template can be removed. MezzoMezzo (talk) 12:33, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
