Abstract

The Poetry before the advent of Islam is called ignorant poetry. This poetry has a special place and significance in the Arabic literature, as it almost reflects all the aspects of Arab life. There were seven eminent poets in the pre-Islamic period whose masterpieces were hung along the curtains of Kaaba. In terms of wisdom, Zuhair had the first position among those seven poets. He is known as a wise poet as well as a peacemaker. The current study is qualitative in nature and done through the content analysis from Zuhair’s selected verses. He produced a sort of poetry distinguished with superiority. He was considered a very pious, humane, wise and peace-loving poet. He is the first person in the ignorant society to have immortality of fellowship, peace and love and sincerity.
