The account also informs us about the way the two naqıdas were presented by Jar¯ır and al-Farazdaq. Here, unlike the naqıdas as presented by Jar¯ır and his earlier opponents in the formative age of the naqaid . contests, these two poets are located in the same place, apparently in a certain circle (halaqa), in al-Mirbad. Ab¯u , Ubayda mentions that Jar¯ır w¯aqafa al-Farazdaq. This verb literally means two persons confronting each other on a battlefield or in a contest or match. Here it may be assumed that both poets stood facing each other surrounded by their audience, each reciting (or re-reciting) his naqıda while the other listened.
