Four possible ways the naqıdas were composed, transmitted and presented: 1. Al-Farazdaq composes the first part of his poem in advance, then recites it, apparently in al-Mirbad. Jarır comes to al-Mirbad and listens to al-Farazdaq’s recitation. He then composes a counter-naqıda in which he refutes the themes and motifs that he was able to remember of his opponent’s naqıda. Some time later, he recites his own poem in al-Mirbad. After al-Farazdaq listens to Jarır presenting his counter-naqıda, he adds more verses to his poem, referring to his rival’s counter-poem. We do not know whether the poet, after composing the additional part of his poem, presents the audience with the complete naqıda or recites only the new part.
