In recognition of the patriarch role of Shaykh Saliu bn Jinta, whose cognomen is Alim, in the inception of the Islamic hegemony in Ilorin, this Journal derived its name. He was a contemporary of Shaykh Usman bn Fodiye, that foremost jihadist of Islam in Africa in the 19th Century and a great purveyor of Arabic and Islamic Studies in Northern Nigeria. Though, Shaykh Alimi’s style of jihad was pronounced in the dissemination of the message of Islam and learning as well as scholarship. His activities, before his settlement in Ilorin and prior to the invitation of his children with the advice of his friend, Afonja, were remarkable in different part of  Yorubaland, Borgu and Nupeland. It is therefore, a pleasure that we in the Department of Arabic, University of Ilorin, Nigeria, christened this periodical Alimi Journal of Arabic Studies (AJAS) in an optative mood for  and identification withthe significant achievements in learning and scholarship of Shaykh Alimi of which, in all modesty, this Department is a continuum. The focus of this Journal is to contribute to the growth and spread of Arabic from the perspectives of language, literature, culture and philology. Also, the Journal is intended to promote a meticulous study of the language with a view to raising aloft the standard.
