Education in Islamic Education - Pre-islamic Arabia

art tribal writing poetry

Arabian society on the eve of Islam was largely but not exclusively nomadic. It was, however, tribal and its cultural life was conditioned by tribal conflicts. Lyric poetry represented the summit of its artistic and intellectual attainment. This poetry was a highly developed art, conveyed orally. This tradition of oral transmission was to continue in the Islamic period. The use of writing and written material—also due to the material conditions at that time—played a minor role, even though the "art of writing" was already known among the Arabs and used, for example, by tradesmen and in the large settlements.
