Nizami-Layla & Majnun لیلی و مجنون

Layla and Majnun is the third of Nizami's five long narrative poems, Khamsa. Qays and Layla fall in love with each other when they are young, but when they grow up Layla’s father doesn't allow them to be together. Qays becomes obsessed with her, and the community gives him the epithet Majnun. When Majnun heard of her marriage, he fled the tribal camp and began wandering the surrounding desert.
