Majnun Layla is an old story of Arabic origin, about the 7th-century Najdi Bedouin poet Qays ibn al-Mullawah and his ladylove Layla bint Mahdi. “The Layla-Majnun theme passed from Arabic to Persian, Turkish, and Indian languages”, most famously through the narrative poem composed in 584/1188 by the Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi, as the third part of his Khamsa. It is a popular poem praising their love story. Lord Byron called it “the Romeo and Juliet of the East.”
