One can make two assumptions regarding the place in which Jar¯ır’s naq¯ıd . a was com- posed and presented. The first is that Jar¯ır composed the first part of his naq¯ıd . a in al-Yam¯ama (not including the added verses), and then shortly afterwards went to al-Mirbad where he presented the poem once again for the audience in al-Bas . ra. The second assumption is that Jar¯ır, after knowing that al-Farazdaq composed his naq¯ıd . a no. 31, decided to confront him directly in al-Mirbad where he composed and recited the first part of the poem. According to both assumptions, it is likely that Jar¯ır recited this poem more than once.
