واكب شعر الجهاد والفتوحات الإسلامية معارك الجهاد الإسلامي منذ صدر الإسلام إلى يومنا هذا، وكان بحق وثيقة تاريخية مهمة لدارسي التاريخ الإسلامي وتاريخ الأدب، فقد سجلت تلك الأشعار صور معارك الجهاد وبطولات قادتها وجندها ورثت الشهداء.... وكان لتلك الأشعار الدور الفاعل في إثارة همم المقاتلين وإلهاب الحماس في نفوسهم، كما سجلت مشاعر المجاهدين إزاء بلادهم وحنينهم إليها والى الأهل والولد والأحبة ووصف الشعراء البلاد المفتوحة والبلاد التي أنقذتها هممٌ المجاهدين وسيوفهم ووصفوا العدو المنهزم ورحمة الجندي المسلم بالعدو وبطش العدو بالمسلمين... وكانت أشعارهم صادقة معبرة.....
ولا شك أن الحروب الصليبية كانت قد أجّجت مشاعر الشعراء فضلا عن عامة الناس فألهبت فيهم الشاعرية لذلك راحوا يصفون عظم المأساة التي وضعهم فيها الصليبيون أثر احتلال جزء من بلاد العرب والقدس الشريف، ولقد كانت البلاد حين دخول الصليبين مفككة لا رابط يوحد بين أجزائها المترامية، فقد انشغل اغلب أمرائها بنزاعات وصراعات داخلية أضعفتهم على مدى السنين وأذهبت ريحهم ولم

Adab AL Rafidayn, Volume 37, Issue 46, Pages 132-165

Place is considered an important element of stability and tranquility of all creation. Man realized this process since his creation and appearence on the surface of the earth. So he took it as asylum and residence in which he could protect himself. The place, moreover, is a frame which embraces the events of the literary arts as awhole. Therfore; the modern literary studies paid great attention to place. It is not new to say that description as it is described as the technique of formulating the text finds in the place what glorifies its existence and its deep roots in the maps and details of the objects. The character relation with the place is however open to spontaneous and objective visions is its structure and constitution.
Soorat Al-wakiah is based on the comparision between paradise and its dwellers on one hand and fire and its dwellers on the other hand and the fate of each group in the Day of Resurrection. The style of expressing the verses of this surah achieved by spatial comparision contributed actively in the process of conviction. This style gave man the chance to think of the two compared objects in order to get after that the judgement of which one is the right to be followed and which one is the best to be selected. The research consists of three axes, the first: the place of the predecessors, the second: the place of the people who have got their books on their right hands and the third axis is the place of the people who have got their books on their left hand. Through these axes, we will recognize the most important characteristics of the Hereafter place which carried multi significations and various senses in away that suits the purposes of the Koranic expression.
Finally. we say that achieving the intellectual aspects of the place through the comparison between paradise/fire was not isolated from the nice show, the suitable performance, the excellent production and the skillful imagination. It was on the contrary having a close relations with the abovementioned, criteria
Thus, the spatial comparison was the rhetorical article which showed and made clear the intellectual aspects in a way that could uncover the secrets of this immortal book i.e. the Kora
