تفسيرُ ما وَرَدَ في ذَمِّ الشُّعَراءِ / Explanation of the Verse of the Qur'an Condemning Poets

1- الإمامُ الباقرُ عَلَيهِ السَّلامُ في قولِهِ تعالى: «و الشُّعَراءُ ...»: هل رَأيتَ شاعرا يَتَّبِعُهُ أحَدٌ ؟! إنّما هُم قَومٌ تَفَقَّهُوا لِغَيرِ الدِّينِ فَضَلُّوا وأضَلُّوا. (معاني الأخبار: 385 / 19).
1. Imam al-Baqir (AS) said with regards to Allah's verse in the Qur'an: "As for the poets…", 'Have you ever seen a poet being followed by anyone?! They are only people who have devoted themselves to works aside from religion, and hence have strayed and led others astray.’
[Ma`anI al-Akhbar, p. 385, no. 19]
