Al-Farazdaq poems

Al-Farazdaq is considered one of the stallions of Arabic poetry in the Umayyad era, and his poetic talent appeared since his early childhood.

Al-Farazdaq’s poems were famous for their roughness of words, difficulty of meanings, a lot of pride, and their numerous poetic themes. He wrote in praise, satire, and pride, in addition to his contributions to language; As it was said: Were it not for Al-Farazdaq’s poetry, a third of the Arabic language would have disappeared, and half of people’s news would have gone.[1]
