Between 1898 and 1906, the Arabic periodical aḍ-Ḍiyāʾ (meaning “illumination“ in English) was published twice a month in Cairo. There are eight year's issues with 24 numbers each (first to third year), resp. 20 numbers each (fourth to eighth year). Editor in chief was Ibrahīm al-Yāziǧī, a linguist and journalist from Lebanon, who on his readers’ request published aḍ-Ḍiyāʾ in succession to his earlier periodical al-Bayān (1897-1898).
