Mostafa Wahbi al-Tal known as Arar is the most famous poet, literary, intellectual, and educated in Jordan. His work consist of themes such as love, wine and drunkenness, being and nothingness, life and death, debauchery and pleasures. Of course, Khamriat (poetry about wine) is one of the most important themes used in his complete poetical work (Valley Yabes) in various ways to the extent that they consider him to be in Khamriat, the coequal of Abū Nuwās, Al-A'sha, and Al-Akhtal. Drinking wine, wine and drunkenness are the most important subjects which obviously are seen in his poetry.
The study has concluded that the khomriat (poetry about wine) of this poet are combined with the theme of wine effects, such as: "debauchery and pleasures, neglect of the world and its belongings, anxiety and fear of death and appreciating time, and using of wine and real grapes, and treatments and medicine of diseases", and is studied with the research method Descriptive-analytic. And it answers to this question: How is wine manifested in the poetry of Mostafa Wahbi al-Tal? And it is based on the assumption that, debauchery and pleasures, and after that, appreciating time is the result of his thought about wine. This research is seeking to achieve this goal: liquor and wine are some of the most important poetic motives of the poet and its presence in his poetry is undeniable.
