JEDDAH: Speakers at a literary evening organized by Majlise Ilmo-Adab, Jeddah, provided an insight into Jahiliyyah Arabic literature and poetry on a day when a book on Arab literature before the advent of Islam was released.
Two top literary figures from Lucknow — Rabab Rasheedi, a noted poet and scholar, and professor Ismat Malihabadi — lauded Pakistani poet Khursheed Rizvi for his latest research in the history of classical Arabic poetry before Islam. Both these literary giants are doyens of the Lucknow school of literature and poetry.
Rizvi’s book “Arabi Adab Qabl Az-Islam” (Arabic Literature Before Islam) was released by Rasheedi, who compared his research with the works of Allama Shibli Nomani and Maulana Syed Sulaiman Nadvi.
