This thesis argues that Hamadhani's maqamas have been influenced by the poetry of the pre-Islamic era, in particular the rihla (journey) in the mu'allaqat (hung poems) and su'luk (brigand) poems. The literature of the maqama genre is well established, yet no single study has attested that a link between Hamadhani's maqamas and pre-Islamic poetry exists or substantiated that Hamadhani was conscious of the interconnections of the narrative within the qaslda construct.
