The core question of this research revolves around 'the ancient Arabic satirical poetry', particularly in Umayyad period, the flourishing era of satirical poetry and art of Naqa'id (polemic lampoons). The problem posed by the core question deals with the magical nature of satire art of poetry, which is deep-rooted in the ancient individual and group rituals. Its main purpose is to account for the way the collective magical ritual is transformed into collective social and artistic rituals, of which some features were inherited by the satirical poetry in the dawn of Islam and during Umayyad era, and even its most ancient origins in the pre-Islamic times.
