The expansion of the Persian language inIndiabegan in the fifth century A.H. and reached its peak in the Safavid Dynesty when many Persian poets emerged. Since Persian was not the mother tongue of the Indians, they attempted to compose Persian grammar books. “Johar al-Tarkib” is one of these books which was written by Monshi Siwaram in the thirteenth century A.H. This book is in the form of a poetical work having 830 verses explaining grammar rules. In this research, it has been tried to closely describe, explain and criticize the work along with its differences with the present Persian grammar books.
Significance of this study is to show how Indians would perceive Persian grammar. It also demonstrates the impact of Arabic on composing Persian grammar books in the Subcontinent.
