Arabic Verse

Urjuza is Arabic- Didactic verse using rajaz meter. The verse focuses more on the details of content leaving the poem "devoid of stylistic elegance and poetic beauty". I found this form at Vol Central.

The elements of the Urjuza are:

  1. stanzaic, written in any number of couplets.
  2. metric, written in rajaz meter
  3. monorhymed or written in rhymed couplets. either aa aa aa etc or aa bb cc dd etc
  4. informative or instructional.
