In Arabic literature and philosophy, mysticism is likely one of the most important traditions. The fountainhead of Sufism in Islam remains to be a controversial factor.
The Persians had many well-known mystic poets. Arabic literature has just one nice mystical poet of natural Arabic descent worthwhile to face subsequent to the Persian masters: Sharaf ad-Din ‘Umar Ibn ‘Ali as-Sa’di, often called Ibn al-Farid, or the Notary’s Son (1181-1253), who was once born in Cairo. He was once committed from early manhood to the mystic’s approach to withdrawal from the area. He was once totally chuffed in later existence to recollect with ecstatic excitement the pilgrimage he had made to Mecca, and to meditate upon the union with the spirit of the Prophet which he had then experienced.
Ibn al-Farid’s Diwan of mystical odes, which was once first gathered through his grandson, is small compared to comparable works of Persian mystics. The Diwan will be considered as a set of homogeneous poems expressing the ecstasy and longing of a loyal lover to develop into one along with his liked. it really is both conspicuous to imagine that except for the “Khamriyya” and “The Poem of the Way”, the majority of Ibn al-Farid’s Diwan will be learn easily as love poetry void of any mystical and religious overtones. in the interim, it can both be an exaggeration to undertake Nabulsi’s argument which continues that Ibn al-Farid didn't harbor a suggestion with no non secular implications. Ibn al-Farid’s Diwan may be thought of “a miracle of literary accomplishments.”
If all critics appear to agree that “al-Ta’iyyatu’l-Kubra” is his masterpiece, we will correctly say that the “Khamriyya” is the second one “jewel” within the assortment. it's a masterpiece in its personal correct, and one of many longest poems after “The Poem of the Way”. during this piece, each note is obvious. each observe is an international bathing in culture, wearing meanings or extra. The symbolism of “Khamriyya” isn't to be present in the other poem of the poet’s assortment. Love is the “wine of life”; the “Khamriyya” devoted to this divine wine, stands in its personal correct as an incomparable masterpiece within the background of Arabic mystical poetry.
