Most of the included works either predated Muhammed or were contemporary, so there are many fascinating bits of pre-Islamic lore. Included is the Moallakat, or the ‘Hanged’ Poems, a collection of seven pre-Islamic poets whose works were once displayed (i.e. ‘hanged’) in the Ka’ba. Another highlight is a synopsis of the ‘Romance of Antar,’ an oral saga of a brave prince of old Arabia.
