"Nasimu r-raudi faah: a muwashshaha and its contrafacts”

by Karin Almbladh, Stockholm

 

SUMMARY: The point of departure is the poem "Nasiimu r-raudi faah”. There are two versions of it, one in Ibn Bishri´s collection "´Uddat at-tawshiih", and one in the Maghrebi tradition. It remains, however, doubtful which one is the "original" version. There are two mu´aaradaat known so far, one Hebrew poem by  Yehudah ha-Levi  (al-Andalus, d. 1141) and one Arabic poem by the Sufi Ibn al-Sabbagh (al- Andalus / Maghreb, first half of the 13th century). In the paper the inter-relationship between the poems is discussed.
