Al-Nabigh Al-Dhubyani: An Outlook into his Lakhmid Connection and Ghassanid Poems (in Arabic)

Auther : Irsan Al-Ramini

Modern scholars have rejected the old interpretation of the disagreement between the pre-Islamic al-Nabihga of Dhubyan and the then lakhmid king al-Nu’man b. al-Mundhir. They believe that the reasons for this disagreement were not personal, as older Arab commentators persistently display them but were not personal, as older Arab commentators persistently display them, but were political, in their view, al-Nabigha came to be convinced that the interests of his tribe would be better served by standing neutral in the Lakhmid-Ghassanid conflict rather than by allying himself with the latter- an approach with was naturally not accepted by al-Nu’man.

These findings have called for a reexamination of al-Nabigha’s Ghassanid poems, particularly with regard to their chronology and the significance of the nature of al-Nabigha’s relations with the Ghassanids. It’s argued here that these poems belong to the period following, not preceding, the fall of the lakhmids, and that they indicate, in fact, tense relations between al-Nabigha and the Ghassanids and not friendly ones as generally assumed.
