Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was one of great Arab poets before and in early days of Islam. From 3000 verses which according to “Ibn Shahr Ashub” (1096- 1192) he wrote which notify his faith, approximately 1000 verses remained and more than 90 percent of this amount, relate to Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and Islamic events, including invitation of his tribe to Islam, and inviting the king of Abyssinia (Ethiopia) to Islam or deploring the enemies and saboteurs in the way of promoting the religion of Islam.
“Ode of Lamie” is his the greatest and most powerful poem which was in praise of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) and was narrated by Shiite and Sunni scholars. This poem is one of the masterpieces of literature and as Ibn Kathir (1301- 1373) said, “Lamie ode is so eloquent and charming that no one other than is poet can write it”.
Throughout history, the Lamia ode has been interpreted by Shiite and Sunni figures; Including “Ali Fahmi Busanai”, “Allameh Sheikh Jafar Naqdi Ammari” and “Allameh Sardar Kaboli”.
