The poetry of the son of Zuriq al-Baghdadi
– Praise the son of Zayriq to the father of good: When Ben Zureiq al-Baghdadi went to Prince Abul-Kheir Abdel-Rahman al-Andalusi to praise him, he wrote a great poem. Although the poem was great and important, Prince Abu Khalid gave it little money, Ibn Zureik felt injustice and the absurdity of his journey to Andalusia, because of the lack of money and the reward he received from Prince Abu al-Khair, which made him remember his wife and that he left her alone and traveled, which increased his grief and fatigue.
It is worth mentioning that it was mentioned that Prince Abu Al-Khair Abdul Rahman had given the son of Zureiq this little money to test him if the son of Zreik makes this money for money only or he was not looking for money, and when he asked about him and his origin, He wanted to increase his offer to him and the envoys sent him, but they found him dead.
They also found a piece of paper next to it and a poem was written on it before he died for his wife, his wife, who was affected by what happened and was still crying for her until he died.
– A poem does not torture him, but he is insulted: And this poem is known as the only poem that has become left of it until this time, and is the poem that they found at his head when finding dead, and this poem is known as the eyes of poetry, which has been studied by poets and writers and All of them have acknowledged and praised the beauty of this poem.
The poet Abu Bakr al-‘Idi also opposed this poem with another poem composed of forty-nine houses. In this poem, Ibn Zureik spoke to his wife and emphasized his love and loyalty to her. He told her his story with the alienation and suffering that he had lived In Andalusia, and he also spoke about the unwillingness of his wife in his travel, which made him grieve and more regretted until the last poem and died after.
The poets praised the true feelings of Ibn Zureiq, the warmth and bitterness of his experience and the eloquence of his unique poetic language, which stemmed from his fantasy of the juggler, in addition to his distinctive rhetorical formulation and his keen and sincere sense of his wife.
