    1. It is a decent overview of Ibn al-Farid and focuses a great deal on his reception as a poet amongst the religious community and literary community for his controversial verse.


    2. Overview about Umar Ibn Al-Farid. I`m astonished, How those non-Arab people aware of this huge amount of information about Islamic heritage !
