The innate desire of man to praise the beauty of the world and the grandeur of humankind has made him to glorify the character of great men. The poetry collections by various poets have always been adorned with eulogizing the noble men and their excellence, and the purest of these eulogies have stood the test of time. With the emergence and spread of Islam, the praise of the nobility and excellence of character of the prophet of mercy, his progenitors, and his companions became the prelude of the poetry books of all Muslim poets. Classical Kurdish poets, most of whom have come from religious centers and schools, also have always been celebrated eulogizing the Prophet, and his progenitors and companions. Among them is the mystic poet Mullah Mahmoud Mufti with the pseudonym Bekhud, whose entire collection of poems is full of praise for the Prophet, his progenitors, and companions. He praises them in Kurdish and Persian, using a mystical and love-expressive language. In a descriptive-analytical method, this study deals with eulogizing the Prophet’s progenitors and companions in the poems by Bekhud in both Kurdish and Persian languages. By scrutinizing the exceptional excerpts of Bekhud’s poems, this paper shows that in these remarkable lyrical introductions, Bekhud goes beyond the fashionable narrative mode, giving his word an emotional color by presenting novel images and mystical expressions.
