It is noteworthy that Muhammad b, Habib (cL 245/860), the transmitter of Jarir's diwan, attempts to solve this problem in Jarir's naqida by claiming that the poem was composcd in two stages. The first part, which does not include any reference to Jarir's poetic rival and which according to Kitab al-aghani was recited in the presence of Muawiya, was composed about 20 years before the second part, However, this statement is doubtful also because it includes incorrect data about the poem.
