The seventh Hijri century is considered the age when the art of prophetic eulogy reached its zenith. This subject matter was addressed at varying degrees by most poets in the Mameluk era. Several of them dedicated special poetic divans (collection of poems) to this topic. As for the subject matter of my research , it focused on one anonymous poet lived at the Mamleuk age called Fatih Addin Muhammad Ibn Muhammad Ibn Said An Nas al Ya’mari (died in 734 A.H.). This poet had a unique character; he excelled in several different arts like composition of poetry; he was also well versed in the knowledge of the Science of tradition, Jurisprudence, Interpretation, Biographies, Lineage and History. He also established a deeply rooted school of writing to the extent that his name was mentioned with his predecessor writers like Abu Fadil Al Mikiyali, Abu Fatih Al Busti, Ibn Al Amid, As Sahib Ibn Abbad and Abu Bakr Al Khawarizmi. The research focused on an investigation and a study of one of his works; the research title is , “Bushara Al Labib Bi Thikra al Habib libn Said an Nas al Ya’mari 761-734 A.H.: Dirasa wa Tahqiq” (Good Tidings in Memory of the Prophet (PBUH) by Ibn Said An Nas al Ya’mari761-734A.H.: A study and Investigation) Following a lengthy search about copies of the manuscript and according to my available means, I was able to collect five copies of the book manuscripts. As for the approached followed in this study, it was an integrated approach since I followed the historical approach in the study of Ibn Said An Nas biography; the descriptive and analytical approach in the study of his poems and the holistic artistic approach in the study of his poems along with the statistical approach in the study of poetic verses (buhur). The research reached several outcomes most important of which are: Ibn Said An Nas was one of the many poets of the prophet’s eulogy. They had composed special poetic divans for this poetic purpose. In this book, he composed twenty nine odes arranged alphabetically. Ibn Said An Nas followed the traditional method in his prophet’s eulogy. He was keen on showing his well versed knowledge of ancient Arab poetry, secrets of the Arabic language. 424 Our poet was distinguished for his poetic steadfastness; he supplied a lot of metaphors and similes in his poems; he was also fond of quotation from the Holy Quran and the Prophet’s traditions. What makes this book more valuable is the huge volume of foreign vocabulary mentioned in his poetry; then he would take the time to explain, interpret and exemplify; this indicates that he is well versed in language; he was also keen on adorning his book with these linguistic additions and details that added more value to the book.
