Salamah ibn Jandal: The Tribe Aficionado and Horse Admirer
AbstractSalamah ibn Jandal is one of the supreme knights and poets who revealed sophisticated pictures about the Arabs cavaliers before Islam. In this literary paper, the researcher endeavors to probe the depth of the poetry of Salamah ibn Jandal as a case of the greatness of the Arabic language through poetry. The poet ibn Jandal is barely studied, for this reason, he deserves several examinations paying attention typically to his verse as a legacy of the elegant, poetic language of Arabs.This study applies the critical-descriptive-analytical methodology. The paper starts with a concise introductory overview shedding light on the Arabic language and its association with poetry. The next part sheds light on ibn Jandal, the man and youth enthusiast, to be followed by another section dealing with Pride of the poet and his Tribe. The study in part before the conclusion deals with admiration of the Arabian horse. It attempts to prove, via poetry of Salamah ibn Jandal, the greatness of the Arabic language and to illustrate the talents of the poet through his poetry. The paper comes to an end with a concluding summary.
