The Excellence of the Arabs by Ibn Qutaybah

The Greatness of the Arabs is a passionate defense of Arab identity –its virtues as well as its values and roots–at the time of political tension and disintegration that was written by one the foremost scholars from the early Abbasid period.

In the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Baghdad The social status that was associated with the claim of being Arab began to decrease. While his family came to Merv to the East, Ibn Qutaybah locks horns with people in his society who denigrated Arabness and exaggerated the splendors of Persian heritage and cultural heritage. Instead, he defends the importance as a representative of Arabs and their history regardless of the doubt and criticism.

The excellence in the Arabs is divided into two sections. First, Arab Prestige, that can be described as an extended argument in support of Arab privileging, Ibn Qutaybah accuses his opponents of being blasphemous in their jealousy. In the next,

The Excellence of Arab Learning He outlines the areas of knowledge where Ibn Qutaybah believed that pre-Islamic Arabians excelled with regard to divination, the stars horses, horsemanship as well as poetry.

 In addition, by incorporating numerous excerpts from the poet’s heritage–“the archives from the Arabs”–Ibn Qutaybah hopes to prove that poetry can be sufficient evidence of Arab superiority.

Inspiring and incisive, The Excellence of the Arabs tackles a fundamental question in a period of immense social change at the beginning of the ancient Muslim civilization: What did the term “Arab” mean? Arab?
