What’s the Quranic view regarding poems and poets? According to Surah ash- Shu’ra verse 224 “And as for the poets- the deviators follow them”. Based on a superficial understanding of this verse, one might believe that the Holy Quran has a negative view towards poems and poets and has scolded the poets. Nevertheless, deeper understanding of this verse and the following verses as well as the way, the date and integrity of their revelation, guide and illuminate us with invaluable concepts. Results show that none of the Quranic conceptions scold the artistic essence of poems and poets. On the contrary, some Quranic verses and narratives which seem to oppose poems and poets are interpretable and justifiable in terms of various contents and situations of poems. As it is clarified in the continuation of this Surah “Except for those who believe, and do good deeds, and remember Allah frequently, … ”, the believer poets are considered as exceptions.
