Pre-Islamic Arabic Poetry

Monday, July 11, 2011

There's lots of very significant material in pre-Islamic Arabic Poetry related to Allah (and His identity), struggle (jihad), inter-tribal contests etc. Some great sites are: Al-Moallaqat in Arabic and an excellent book and the Muallaqat in English.
Also, an excellent thesis "The concept of Allah as the highest God in Pre-Islamic Arabia (A study in Pre-Islamic Arabic Religious Poetry)".
