(The Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem)
Obayy bin Ka'b
reported that the Messenger of Allah
"Verily there is wisdom in poetry."
*It means that there are some poetry and poems
which contain wisdom about the truth of the Qur'an,
hadith, and Allah, but
there are others which lead to evil ways as they contravene the Shari'ah.
The former is lawful, while the latter is unlawful. The latter deals with
frivolous talk, novels, love-episodes, and false descriptions. [Al-Hadis
