Al-Mutanabbi in Abu Hilal Al-Askari Two Books: Al-Sina Atain and Diwan Al-Maani (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdullah Muhareb

This research unearths that Al-Sina'atain and Diwan al-Maa'ni are two books of Abu Hilal al-Askari revealing his attitude towards al-Mutanabbi. Despite the latter's considerable fame for designing significations, Abu Hilal only referred to him either as dispraising or as imperfections. He only approved three of the poet's verse; meanwhile he referred to thirty of his verses which, from his own point of view, he believed to be imperfect. He adhered his poetry to some modernizers or our contemporaries. The researcher has been keen to introduce the contemporary scholars' points of view of Abu Hilal and those who followed him about the imperfect verses of al-Mutanabbi. In most of them, Abu Hilal was parroting his contemporaries. The researcher also, expresses critical view towards the faults orientated to al-Mutanabbi verses. He also refuted Abu Hilal's bias contemporary attitudes against al-Mutanabbi. It is noteworthy that most contemporary critics of the great poets such as Jareer and al-Farazdaq, overlooking Abu Tammam were opponents those poets; notice the stance of Abu Amr towards Jareer, al-Farazdaq and al-Akhtal, and Ibn al-A'arabi against Abu Tammam when attacking his poetry saying: "If that  were poetry, then the Arabs' poetry was faked". The whole story was due to contemporaneous as Ibn Qutaybah said, "Every new action is not accepted by people" i.e. People treat every new and good phenomenon as hostile and as something unpopular, then by time they are acclimatized to it and becomes familiar". And as mentioned in alTag the contemporary is always against his mates.
