it really seems that al-Farazdaq’s naq¯ıd . a was composed in two stages. The first included the composition of verses 1–64 (or perhaps verses 1–62). 24 Jar¯ır’s naq¯ıd . a, which includes only 62 verses, addresses these verses. We can now understand why Jar¯ır’s poem was not as long as al-Farazdaq’s. Apparently, it was a counter-poem composed in response to the first version of al-Farazdaq’s naq¯ıd . a which has almost a similar number of verses, and not a complete version of the poem. Then, after hearing Jar¯ır’s counter-poem, al-Farazdaq decided to add many other verses to refute Jarir
