Muhammad Mahdi Al-Jawahiri (July 26, 1899 - July 27, 1997) is an Iraqi and Arab poet, born in Najaf, in Iraq. Al-Jawahiri was born in Najaf at the turn of the Twentieth Century to a family of poets and traditional learning. His father, his two brothers, and other members of his extended family were poets. Following the footsteps of other classical poets, al-Jawahiri began at his early age to pursue a traditional course of studies: Arabic, religion, jurisprudence and Arabo-Islamic history. He was particularly drawn to classical Arabic poetry which became the focus of his interests. According to his biographers, he thoroughly immersed himself in the study of major classical Arab poets and memorized a great deal of their works. Among the poets he admired were al-Buhturi (d. 897) who became his most favored companion, and al-Mutanabbi (d. 965) whom he respected for his strong personality and his sense of pride, and with him he has been often compared.
